More coverage for EFG in Farmers Weekly

Farmer interest in trading natural capital is in the ascendancy.

Legislation has just been passed requiring house builders and commercial developers to deliver at least a 10% improvement in biodiversity in relation to their activities from January 2024.

And last week Defra launched the third round of the Natural Environment Investment Readiness Fund, offering grants of up to £100,000 to help farmers prepare nature projects that will attract private sector investment.

It is therefore little surprise that the Environmental Farmers Group (EFG) has enjoyed sustained growth since it was launched in May 2022, to the extent that it now comprises of 268 farmers covering 146,800ha in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Northamptonshire and north Lincolnshire.
