Farming in Protected Landscapes Programme
Are you a farmer with land in, or bordering, the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Our new Farming in Protected Landscapes programme, launched nationally by DEFRA, is opening 1 July 2021 and will fund projects that support nature recovery, tackle climate change, provide opportunities for people to discover nature and support sustainable farm businesses.
