The Cheffins Rural Professionals team deal with grants and subsidies and provide strategic advice for farmers and landowners across the region to diversify, enhance and maximise the profits from their farm or estate.
The team is well versed in using these schemes to their full potential and ensuring payment on behalf of our clients. Cheffins helps hundreds of clients each year with Basic Payment Schemes, Countryside Stewardship Schemes, Rural Grant Funding and smaller, niche funding schemes. Cheffins has a close working relationship with Local Enterprise Partnerships, LEADER Groups and the Rural Payments Agency, ensuring that our clients can maximise all opportunities on offer. If you are considering applying for any rural grants or funding, give one of our team a call.
