Scheme offers year-long loan of New Holland machine

Three UK farmers will be able to use a New Holland machine free of charge for a year, as part of a scheme to help forward-thinking farmers.

New Holland has partnered with the Prince’s Countryside Fund to launch the ‘Up to Speed’ scheme, which is open to British farmers who can justify how the loan of a machine will help their businesses develop.

This could include a newcomer to the industry who wants to kickstart their business, or an existing farmer who is looking to become more efficient, or develop/diversify their current business.

Three different New Holland machines are available for loan – a Boomer Compact tractor, a T6 or T7 tractor and a TH telehandler.

New Holland business director Pat Smith said: “We are very excited to be teaming up with The Prince’s Countryside Fund on this fantastic venture by giving three farmers in the UK a unique opportunity.

“We at New Holland are very proud to be the major British tractor manufacturer, we value our heritage here in Basildon, Essex, and we are dedicated to supporting British agriculture and British farmers. We think this could be an excellent leg up for the three lucky beneficiaries!”

JLS band member JB Gill, who is an ambassador for the Fund, added: “Over the past ten years the Fund has been championing British farms and encouraging their sustainability. This partnership with New Holland is a fantastic opportunity for farmers to make a real difference to their business.”

Applications close at midnight on 1st March 2020. Applicants must be 18 or over, UK citizens resident in the UK with a UK passport, and hold a British driving or tractor licence.

To apply, fill in an application form and upload a short supporting video explaining why you deserve the machine: https://www.princescountrysidefund.org.uk/partner-initiatives/up-to-speed-scheme
