Agricultural Grants

We have been involved in a wide range of grant funded projects, so if you are looking for a new piece of machinery or wanting to diversify away from farming we are able to help.

With a wide range of grants available it can be a daunting process finding the right one for you. Together with our technical knowledge and previous experience we can guide you through the whole process from expressing an interest to the final claim.
