The phasing out of BPS by 2027 will impact every farming business in England. To help farmers through the transition away from Direct Payments, currently paid as BPS, Defra has created the Future Farming Resilience Fund (FFRF) offering free business advice open to any farm currently in receipt of direct payments.

Under Future Farming Resilience Fund (FFRF) Defra is funding 19 independent organisations to give help and advice to help farmers to:

  • understand the changes that are happening
  • identify how they may need to adapt their business model to take account of the ending of BPS and the disappearance of the income stream it provides
  • know what they need to do and when they need to do it
  • have access to tailored support including 1-2-1 business advice.
