STEPS Farm Grant Programme

tractor in fieldThe STEPS Farm Grant Programme is now open for applications and farmers have the chance to obtain a grant of up to £5,000.

This is a voluntary scheme for farmers within certain river catchment areas in exchange for taking measures to protect watercourses from diffuse pollution.

There are 35 funding options including pasture pumps, pesticide biofilters, rainwater harvesting and ‘farmer innovation’.

Please contact Sally Pentreath on 01608 661666 to see if you are within the catchment areas and for further information.
