New entrants to agriculture

We are working to help increase access to land for those who want to farm and reduce barriers to new entrants.

For Scotland to have a successful farming sector there needs to be new entrants to drive innovation and best practice. We are looking at new models and structures to increase the availability of land for new entrants; provide practical guidance on existing joint venture models and identify barriers to succession and retirement.
