Farming and countryside

Rural Wales

Together with other government organisations, we are working towards sustainable management of agriculture and the environment.

Support for the farming community

There are three charities working together under the umbrella name "Farming Help" to assist the farming community.


Gwlad is our bi-monthly magazine for farm and forestry businesses and all those involved with agriculture and rural Wales. It contains news, guidance and information in an accessible, easy-to-read format.

Gwlad online provides everything that is in the magazine plus additional up to the minute news features, video, interviews and announcements.

Wales Rural Development Programme

Wales Rural Development Programme enables us to fund activities which support the countryside and rural communities to encourage the sustainable management of agriculture and the environment as part of the Common Agricultural Policy.

Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO): Programme Evaluations (external link) includes a variety of evaluation reports which have been produced in conjunction with or on behalf of WEFO.
