Calling Welsh Farmers – Welsh Farm Business Grant Applications Open!

The beginning of September appears to have brought little change in the poorer weather which has dominated a lengthy, catchy harvest. However, on a more positive note, if you’re a Welsh farmer, you have reason to rejoice with September’s arrival. Here’s Why:

Expressions of interest for the Farm Business Grant (Window 9) have opened once again. You can apply from the 1st of September 2021 until the 1st October 2021 via RPW Online (Rural Payments Wales Online: https://gov.wales/login-rural-payments-wales-rpw-online).

As per the Welsh government’s website, the grant provides a maximum 40% contribution towards capital expenditure on equipment and machinery, which offer ‘clear and quantifiable benefits to farm enterprises’, or improve ‘technical, financial and environmental performance’. Grants range from £3,000 to £12,000.
