Setting up a farm:

You can find out what you should bear in mind when setting up an agricultural business and where to complete individual formalities from the relevant agricultural offices in the respective federal states. The guide of the NRW Chamber of Agriculture serves as orientation.

Support programs:

Direct payments (1st pillar):
A basic prerequisite for receiving direct payments is eligible land and the associated payment entitlements

A good overview of the guidelines for the respective premiums can be found in the information sheets on the subsidy applications, such as the one for Hesse.

Support for rural areas (2nd pillar)

The second pillar of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) serves to strengthen rural regions. This includes support measures such as the promotion of organic farming, agri-environmental and climate measures (AUKM) or individual farm investment support.
