Financial Case for Organic Farming
Financial support for organic farming
Depending on which UK country you’re based in, government funding is available for farmers and land owners to make environmental improvements, including financial support for farmers to convert to, and manage their farms to organic standards.
Funding availability and rates on offer can differ by country.
Business Benefits of Organic Farming
Converting to organic farming is a complex business decision, that requires careful consideration and planning.
However, with strong growth in the organic market, the Government voicing their commitment to prioritise the environment and soil health in the Agricultural Bill and public interest in sustainable farming on the rise, there are huge opportunities for farmers looking to meet growing consumer trends for British sustainable food and drink.
Organic farming often results in significantly lower input costs and, in some cases, higher prices for products. In addition, organic farmers can be eligible for financial support, depending on what country they are based in, helping to improve farm resilience and farm profitability.
Financial support for England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
Funding is available from the government to support the conversion to, and maintenance of, organic farms. Find out more about the grants available in your area below.
