Grants & Funding

Diversifying your agricultural business can greatly increase your brand's reach, but it can also be costly. Britain's rural market boasts a rich history, building the foundation for countless modern industries, from catering to tourism. Our country relies on its farmers.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, or DEFRA, understands this. To support English rural businesses, they created the Rural Development Programme for England, a farm diversification grant for agricultural projects. At Pastures Green, we can help you to secure the grants on offer for your rural brand.

What Impact Does the Rural Development Programme for England Have on Agriculture?

Investment in local agriculture can improve the sustainability of our environment.
Extra funding can fuel the farming industry and Britain's economic stability.
Successful funding ensures that British farming continues to thrive.
DEFRA's grants protect and nurture the forestry shaping the countryside.

How Can We Help You Apply for Funding?

Three main schemes benefit from RDPE's funding; to improve the environment, increase farming productivity or grow the rural economy.  

Whether you are a farmer or a forester, managing land or living in a rural community, we want you to make the most of the opportunities available. Sound like your brand? Then we are here to help.  

Funding for farm diversification can revolutionalise your business prospects. There is a range of opportunities available, so Pastures Green are on hand to find the right grants for you, create an application and watch your brand flourish. Build your rural brand with DEFRA's funding scheme and Pastures Green's expertise.

    "There are few others who live and breath countryside, farming and communications so if you are trying to communicate on rural issues or to a rural community, Amy knows intrinsically what matters - there is no substitute for real life experience. I had complete confidence in the job she was doing and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend others to engage her and Pastures Green."

    "Amy has been a brilliant help when it has come to diversifying from farm to B&B. There is so much that we wouldn’t have known or could have missed without her which could have been disastrous for our business. She has been flexible and open minded and tailored our package perfectly to suit our business. It’s brilliant to have found a PR business."

    "Amy is a natural communicator with the ability to adapt depending on the audience, which i think is rare to find in someone. She has helped me identify my key audience which before speaking to Amy I hadn't even considered! I have complete confidence in Amy and would recommend her without doubt to others."
