Farming is Changing


This sets out the latest information on farming policy in England from 1 January 2021. It will be updated as needed and aims to remove some uncertainty. It gives information that farmers and those in the farming industry might need to get ready for the coming changes, such as:

  • phasing out direct payments
  • changing how we work together
  • changing rules and regulations
  • grant programmes

Email for a physical copy of the Farming is Changing publication.
