The Real Farming Trust is asking agroecological businesses to register interest for its funding programme before the final application window closes on 30 September 2022.

Apply for funding

The Real Farming Trust supports small food and farming enterprises through the Loans for Enlightened Agriculture Programme (LEAP), a flexible and affordable funding solution which offers a mix of loan and grant.

LEAP works with existing cooperatives, social enterprises and community businesses which are past the start-up stage and might now be struggling to get to the next step. Those supported so far include farmers, food producers and retailers who produce good food ethically in their local communities.

Real Farming Trust Executive Director and Herefordshire farmer Robert Fraser says:

“The Trust is interested in supporting agroecological businesses of all types, from micro-dairies and community bakeries to ethical supermarkets and veg box schemes.

We’re very different to high street banks – we understand the food and farming sector, and want to see small, agroecological, local enterprises succeed.

This is the last chance to apply for funding in 2022.”
