With agricultural support now increasingly moving towards the environmental sector it is important that you have the correct advice when considering any agri-environment schemes on your holding.
At Madeleys we have established close links with all the Advisors from Natural England having been involved in this sector of work for over 15 years since the introduction of the Countryside Stewardship Schemes, the pilot Arable Stewardship Scheme, Entry Level and Higher Level Stewardship schemes from 2005to 2014 and now the New Countryside Stewarsdship with first agreements due to start in 2016. We have a broad in depth knowledge of the schemes and can advise farming businesses so that they have the correct advice to assess how an environment scheme could fit into their farming business.
Well thought out schemes will not only improve the environment but also provide an additional income stream.
