Farm Diversification Grant

The farm diversification grant programme has been set up to enable farming businesses to diversify into non-farming activities.

It aims to help farmers support the underlying farm business by bringing in supplementary income in addition to that from traditional farming pursuits.

 

This may be by putting under used resources to better use, for example old farm buildings, or it may be by being able to meet a local demand for a product or service that is not currently being met.

 

Grants are available for between £5,000 and £100,000. 60% match funding required.

 

Examples of the types of projects we could fund include;

 

  • Starting a new business
  • Construction costs or establishment costs for workshops, factories, premises and facilities
  • Purchasing equipment (not consumables)
  • Processing and marketing of non-agricultural products
  • Processing and marketing of agricultural products
  • Developing craft and handicraft activities and/or industries
  • Leisure, recreational and sport activities
  • Farm shops
  • Cafés
  • Developing premises for other business use
  • Acquisition or development of computer software
  • Acquisition of patents, licences, copyrights, trademarks
  • The costs of construction, acquisition (including leasing) or improvement to immovable property
  • The purchase or lease purchase of new machinery and equipment (including second-hand equipment)
  • General costs such as architect, engineer and consultants fees up to a maximum of 15% of total project costs.
