FARMERS across Fenland can now apply for grants totalling �4million, to support the processing and marketing of farm produce.
The grants are available under the Fens Adventurers Rural Development Programme, which aims to support business development, improve skills and create new jobs.
Farmers looking to diversify their business, or looking to work with others to add value to their produce, are also invited to apply.
The programme runs to December 2013 and is being administered by Cambridgeshire ACRE, on behalf of the largely private sector Local Action Group.
