The Countryside Stewardship application window is open through to 30 July 2022, for agreements starting 1 January 2023.

Countryside Stewardship provides financial incentives for farmers, woodland owners, foresters and land managers to look after and improve the environment.

It is suitable for many types of land use, including conventional and organic farmland, coastal areas, uplands and woodlands

This year, a Countryside Stewardship agreement looks more appealing than ever thanks to a range of land-management and capital options to suit every farm. It’s worth noting that the scheme also has new uplift in payment rates.

If you are interested in applying this year, please call Claire Eastham on 01935 852170 or email
