What we do



The Farming in Protected Landscapes programme is open to all farmers and land managers (including from the private, public and charity sectors) in a National Park, AONB or the Norfolk Broads – or where activity on the ground can bring benefit to one or more of those areas.

Other organisations and individuals can apply, as long as they do this in collaboration with a farmer or land manager, or in support of a farmer or group of farmers.

The programme supports activity on any land within the North Pennines AONB and most of the funding will be provided to projects within the AONB boundary. It can also support activity on other land where projects can demonstrate benefit to the North Pennines, or the AONB Partnership’s objectives or partnership initiatives.

You can see the boundary by visiting the MAGIC mapping website. Click on ‘designations’, ‘land-based designations’ and then ‘Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty England.’
