Important information for farmers about the transition from the Common Agricultural Policy to the UK’s Environmental Land Management (ELM) scheme as we come out of the EU.
Future Farmscapes worked to build stronger relationships between farmers, communities, and conservation organisations throughout the South West Peak.
This project was supported by two Farm Link Workers (Andrew and David) who were experts in communicating the ideas of conservation and relating these concepts to the people living and working in the area. They provided an essential link between our other projects, such as Slowing the Flow, Glorious Grasslands or Working for Waders (among many others) and local individuals or groups interested in working with the Partnership.

What we did
- Improved relationships between landowners, farmers and others living, working or visiting the South West Peak
- Offered opportunities for farmers and residents to be involved in making decisions about what got funding and where projects happened
- 20 farm grants were awarded to achieve 26 project elements
- Employed individuals from the South West Peak understood the important issues affecting residents and visitors
- Forged strong ties between land managers and conservation groups evidenced by multiple project activity on 46 different landholdings, with advice and management interventions for multiple interest features which had a wider benefit for landscape and ecosystem services.
