A TWENTY-MILLION-POUND farm business development and support initiative has been launched in Wales.

Farming Connect aims to give farming families practical advice and access to EU and UK funding over the next two years.

An agricultural consultant will review the farm business and draw up a development plan during a free half-day farm visit.

The action plan drafted could involve cashflow preparation, the completion of grant application forms or even an exit strategy.

Capital grants include up to 75,000 to aid on-farm diversification and up to 20,000 for farm improvements.
