Farmers could claim £309 per visit for Educational Access (ED1) by adding it to their Countryside Stewardship schemes this spring. There has never been a more important time for children to find out where & how their food is produced. We urgently need farmers to open the farm gate, making hands-on, real-life experiences possible. 

The Country Trust provides FREE 1-2-1 support via its network of coordinators who work with farmers to create safe, educational and high-quality day trips. There’s a huge demand for visits from schools across the country, ready to bring their pupils to a local farm. 

Add Educational Access (ED1) to your Countryside Stewardship schemes this spring.

The Land App was joined by The Country Trust in our Countryside Stewardship webinar last month, where they explained – in a little more detail – how farmers can be paid to get involved through the Countryside Stewardship scheme. Watch the short talk below via our Land App YouTube channel:
