We have vouchers worth up to £2,500 to help fund the cost of a full carbon audit and soil testing for carbon.  You will need to be prepared to share your data and discuss the results with other farmers at workshops.

Between now and the end of March 2023, we will be organising a series of workshops to help you adapt to the changes to support payments and the rising cost of farm inputs.  Please contact us to go on the mailing list for events and with suggestions for topics.
