New Entrant Support Scheme: apply for the pilot
A new post, “New Entrant Support Scheme: apply for the pilot” has just been published on DEFRA's Future Farming blog.
DEFRA say: We want to better support those who want to enter farming and develop land-based businesses. One idea that we said we were keen to test through a pilot was incubation: providing tactical support to young businesses through the early stages of development. We put out a call for proposals from organisations to lead these projects through the new entrant support pilot. The bids we received over the summer were impressive. Now that we have pilot leads, you can apply to take part in the pilot.
