Grants & Subsidies

Basic Payment Scheme

With the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) typically being one of the largest receipts many farms will receive during the year, professional help to complete and submit applications is far from a luxury.


The North East has one of the higher rates of stewardship uptake across the country and we are happy to guide those farmers who are considering Mid-Tier or Higher Tier for their holding. If your farm is still subject to an Entry Level Stewardship (ELS) agreement, please be aware of the termination date to ensure you are able to enter into a new agreement as soon as possible as all Countryside Stewardship agreements now commence on 1st January.

Other Schemes

Applications are also handled for the following grant schemes;

  • Countryside Productivity Grant
  • Farming & Forestry Improvement Scheme
