    Hi everyone,
    Looking to see what my options are for grants as a young farmer. I will have comleted the greencert in the new year. I am currently renting 8.5 ha and have 50 sheep at present. It seems all the grant are aimed a very narrow stran of young farmers who are estblished with large heards or flocks. They moved the goal posts this year for the national reserve and I was just outside the deadline in 15. I was lucky enought to get 3 entitlements this year from a gift but thats it. As i got my flock number in 15 my ability to get some of the payments will run out in 2020.
    If anyone has experience of this i would love to hear your opinions.
