With more than 25 years of experience in Defra Schemes (MAFF previously) - we have exceptional knowledge and understanding of the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) which has evolved over the period into its current form.
With Brexit ahead of us, we will continue to be at the forefront of this important scheme.
As Entry Level and Higher Level Stewardship Schemes are being phased out, our expert team can advise you on the replacement scheme, Countryside Stewardship (CS).
Open to all eligible farmers, woodland owners, foresters and land managers, CS provides financial incentives to help look after the environment through activities such as, conserving and restoring wildlife habitats, woodland creation and management as well as flood risk management.
With three main areas of the scheme, it can be a complex process but our friendly team are here to take the burden away from you, ensuring that you get the best options for your land.
