Young Farmers and New Entrants Start-Up Grant Schemes

There are two schemes.

The Young Farmers Start-Up Grant Scheme is aimed at those who are starting an agricultural business for the first time or who are taking over an existing agricultural business.

The New Entrant Start-Up Grant Scheme is aimed at those who started their agricultural business in the last 12 months.

Funding can be used to help with many of the costs associated with starting up an agricultural business. This could include purchasing land, equipment, machinery or livestock, or constructing buildings or infrastructure.
