The Agri Carbon Kernow project offers farmers in Cornwall free support to help them:

  • Reduce their carbon footprint thereby saving costs and doing their part to be part of the solution to climate change.
  • Improve their water resilience and the impact of their enterprises on the quality and quantity of water in their catchments; and
  • Assess the natural environment of their farms and how they can be part of the solution for nature recovery.

The project is an extension of the highly successful Farm Net Zero project that already supports farms in Cornwall.

Part-funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, Agri Carbon Kernow is a collaboration between Duchy College, Westcountry Rivers Trust, Cornwall Wildlife Trust, the Farm Carbon Toolkit and the Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Growth Hub to deliver support to a limited number of farms during 2024.

Express your interest now, as places are limited! 

The support includes Assessments and Action Plans for:

  • Your farm’s Carbon footprint, including a list of options to reduce that footprint, make your enterprise more resilient, and provide you with a decarbonisation plan to help you and farming on the journey to Net Zero.
  • Managing Water on your farm, how you use it and the impact on your watercourses, providing you with a list of options to choose from and where funding may be found to assist, enabling you to choose actions for your farm water plan.
  • Your farm Environment, providing options to choose from and where funding may be found to assist, including advice on the new Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI), helping you create an environmental land management plan for your farm.
