This is for managers of land in upland areas, giving information about how Uplands Entry Level Stewardship (Uplands ELS) works.
Uplands ELS is a strand of Entry Level Stewardship (ELS) introduced in 2010. It rewards hill farmers and land managers in Severely Disadvantaged Areas (SDAs) for the delivery of environmental and landscape benefits, through a series of specially designed upland options.
Uplands ELS recognises the crucial role that hill farmers play as custodians of the upland landscape, and will reward food production systems that underpin these landscapes.
