Sunrise over farmed hills on a cold January morning.
January has been a fantastic start for us here at Land App, as we continue to make progress on our projects with the DEFRA departments about managing the natural capital market.

We are committed to simplifying the process for all land managers to easily access the natural capital market. Our goal is to ensure that advisors and land managers can swiftly create a baseline and a future plan for their holdings, positioning themselves to enter any natural capital market available to them. Whether it’s the England Woodland Creation Offer, Countryside Stewardship, Biodiversity Net Gain, or even funding from a water company, we are here to support you every step of the way.

A highlight of our recent activities was our presentation at the Oxford Farming Conference, chaired by the WWF, where I emphasised the importance of spatial prioritisation and creating consistency across all stakeholders in the land economy. This is crucial to ensure that land managers can understand their baseline, what they are being incentivised to do, and how they can access funding to deliver the outcomes that the market is seeking.

Our mission is to make the natural capital market with spatial prioritisation accessible to everyone, reducing the administrative burden and costs associated with managing it. By doing so, we believe that land managers will not only increase their profitability but also contribute to a thriving land economy where everyone is fairly remunerated.

Our focus is on reducing resistance, inertia, and administration in the land sector. As a result, farmers can efficiently improve the resilience of their holdings and become more competitive within the supply chain. An excellent example of this is the suite of England Woodland Creation Offer tools, which we have recently released with the Forestry Commission. We’re thrilled to report that it’s seeing great uptake among our users.

Moreover, we are eager to facilitate more direct integrations between Land App and third parties. This includes enabling direct submissions to DEFRA and collaborating with other funders from the private sector. We understand that land managers should only have to do things once and have seamless access to this new market.

We’re optimistic about strengthening our partnerships with other organisations within the land sector to support this. Our aim is to align and push forward to create commonality and consistency to support all stakeholders in achieving their resilience targets.

As always, we value your feedback and are committed to continuously improving our services. We strive to make your day-to-day life in the land economy as simple and efficient as possible. Rest assured that we are here to support you every step of the way. On that note, if you could, please spare a few moments to share your thoughts in this brief survey. Your thoughts are invaluable in our efforts to support you more effectively.

We would like to express our sincerest gratitude for your ongoing support and collaboration. Together, we can make a positive impact in the land sector. We are excited about the year ahead and look forward to sharing more news and updates with you.

Best Regards,

Tim Hopkin

Growing up on Norney Farm in Surrey, my early years were shaped by a profound love for farming and nature. Concerns about the farm’s sustainability sparked a journey that led me to explore property studies at Bristol UWE and delve into Permaculture and Regenerative Agriculture. These experiences abroad, particularly in France and South Africa, highlighted the pressing need for enhanced support in the land management sector, planting the seeds for what would become Land App. Following stints at Pear Technology and a groundbreaking collaboration with Geovation, Land App was born, driving innovation and connectivity in land management while fostering prosperity for farmers and the environment.
