Agri-environment schemes

Agri-environment payments will become an ever-more important income stream for farms and estates as the government moves towards a system of ‘public money for public goods’ under the Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS).

With all the facts and figures at our fingertips, we can evaluate your suitability for the various schemes, with their range of annual and capital payments.

“When it comes to support payment, you need to know you’re in the right schemes that suit your farm, your business and you – and CLM help me navigate my way through this. Paperwork nowadays can also be a minefield, but I know they’ll get it done. CLM’s knowledge of BPS and stewardship schemes is second to none, and everyone there is a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”
