Farmers in Devon and Cornwall are being offered free advice and workshops on the imminent change in funding from BPS to environmental land management.

The workshops focus on business skills and environmental land management funding.

A special course for young farmers will offer advice and support on tenancy applications, working with the bank and planning for the future.

A workshop for dairy farmers will explore costings, the Red Tractor scheme and slurry investment.

There is also a diversification workshop looking at planning, food processing and tourism.

The whole programme is then wrapped up with three and a half hours of one-to-one advice.

Farm Cornwall, Exmoor Hill Livestock Network and Dartmoor Hill Livestock are running the training programmes which are funded by Defra under its Future Farm Resilience Fund.

In the case of Farm Cornwall's offer, the workshops will take place in Camelford, Liskeard, Truro and Penzance.
