New Farm Partnership Register


FAO Farm Advisors & Farmers considering entry to the DAFM register of Farm Partnerships

Re: Changes in the administration of registered farm partnerships – implementation of closed period for partnership applications.

Please note that in order to mitigate the risk of delays to Farmers’ BPS payments, applications to the DAFM Register of Farm Partnerships will not be processed between 31/03/2018 and 15/05/2018. It is necessary given the number and complexity of interactions between schemes under the Rural Development Programme to implement this change to ensure that high standards of service to Farmers are maintained.  This will not impact on the timings of the collaborative farming grant scheme.

Additional points to note re administration of farm partnership applications:

  • Applications must be complete upon submission; incomplete applications will not be processed.
  • If the partnership will have two or more herd numbers, it is essential that you do not transfer to a joint venture during the dates stated above.
