Applications for an award are being invited from farmers who have made small scale changes to their farms (for instance, collecting rainwater or composting green waste) in order to benefit the local environment and improve profits.
The winner of the Simple Solutions Award will receive professional advice to the value of £1,000 from a Farming Connect approved consultant, along with £1,250 from Environment Agency Wales to carry out further environmental improvements on the farm. A runner up will receive a £750 grant for works on their farm.
The award is open to all farmers with no restrictions placed on size of farm and/or type of farming. Applicants only need to describe what simple and innovative changes they have made on their farm which have resulted in improvements not only for crops and livestock, but the environment as well.
Entries need to be received by Friday 24 June. For full details of the Simple Solutions Award and an application form, please contact
or phone Joanne Marley on 02920 466123.
