We provide funding for farmers and other land managers in England to reward them for managing the land in ways that improve the environment.
We provide online maps that show all the land in publicly funded agri-environment schemes. The maps show the extent and distribution of land that is in the Environmental Stewardship Scheme, Countryside Stewardship Scheme, Environmentally Sensitive Areas Scheme and the English Woodland Grant Scheme.
View the map showing schemes in your local area. Enter your parish, postcode or place name in the search box above the map.
Open to all farmers, land managers and tenants in England, you can receive payment to deliver effective environmental management on your land.
