Farming Investment Fund

Farmers in England can now apply for funding of between £25,000 and £300,000 to help them boost their businesses and add extra value to their produce.

The funding is being made available through the new £30 million Farming Investment Fund (FIF).

Funded by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs the FIF can be used to purchase equipment to process, diversify and add value to their products after they have been harvested or reared.

This could include:

  • equipment for preparing or processing edible agricultural products for added value sales
  • equipment for ‘second stage’ processing of grain – for example, colour sorting, blending
  • equipment for processing non-edible agricultural products into new products (for example, flax, hemp, wool, hides, and skins)
  • equipment for retailing eligible agricultural products (for example, vending machines or display facilities)
  • premises for the preparation or processing of added value agricultural products, including associated integral storage areas.

You can apply for a grant if you are:

  • a grower or other producer of agricultural products (by which we mean you carry on an agricultural or horticultural activity, including rearing livestock)
  • a business processing agricultural or horticultural products which is at least 50% owned by agricultural or horticultural producers.

The Government has also announced that the first round of new Slurry Infrastructure grants, worth £13 million, will open later this autumn. These new grants will help livestock farmers in England upgrade their slurry storage and nutrient management systems and, in so doing, help reduce water and air pollution.
