The Farming Investment Fund, a Rural Payments Agency managed scheme has recently been announced. This comprises of two main sections:

There are various changes made to the fund from the previous grants that have been available, so do check to see if you are eligible as the criteria have changed. For example, the minimum grant in the previous CPSG scheme was £3,000, reduced to £2,000 for eligible items in the new Farming Equipment and Technology Fund
