Just seen these, may be of use to some people. Can't see any funding required from the farm, just a grant for new work.

Has anyone any experience under this scheme?

We've given it a shot, despite not being in the priority area, watch this space.

Us too, although we are in the right area. If successful, it'll see us on mains water. And the cows, too!

Did you get it approved ? Have u got it installed ?

I am very interested in this, as I need to store water for my orchard.

I cannot find it detailed anywhere, but can you apply for this, if you also are part of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme. Or can I tag this onto the CSS as a capital item ?

I suppose you claimed "CSF009 Ram pumps and associated pipework".

Any advice or does or don'ts.
