Environmental Compliance
Farmacy offer practical, environmental advice based on detailed knowledge of the farm business, demonstrating how the farm should meet Cross Compliance legislation, whilst maximising the recovery of government funding, through Environmental Stewardship.
The Cross Compliance Service: The production of an annual report tailored to the clients' requirements outlining Cross Compliance legislation.  This involves detailing current farm policies and subsequent actions required for ongoing compliance including putting in steps to manage the 2015 soil protection standards.
New Countryside Stewardship Grants will be available in 2015 and Farmacy will be able to support farm businesses when applying for membership of and managing the new scheme structure. Countryside Stewardship will have three main strands:
Middle Tier (similar to ELS): Farm survey, followed by preparation of scheme application and a supporting client report detailing requirements for the establishment and annual maintenance of all scheme features on an ongoing basis.
Higher Tier (similar to HLS): Initial audit to establish higher tier suitability, followed by completion of scheme applications and supporting documentation, in association with ongoing advice on the establishment and maintenance of scheme features.
A Lower Tier of capital grants, including the hedgerows and boundaries capital will also be available.
