Eco-conscious Norfolk farmers have been offered free support to find practical ways of improving their carbon footprint.

The Royal Countryside Fund (RCF) has teamed up with Barclays bank to offer the Carbon Clarity programme, which helps farmers understand how to manage carbon on their land.

Following a successful pilot year in Cumbria, the programme has been expanded into Norfolk to help a further 20 farming families.

The programme includes a group workshop presented by Becky Wilson of Farm Carbon Toolkit, and one-to-one support to create a "carbon action plan".

RCF executive director Keith Halstead said the programme "will help equip farmers with the knowledge and practical skills to manage their carbon on farm and take full advantage of new opportunities being introduced through environmental management programmes.”

The next Carbon Clarity workshop will take place from 6pm-9pm on Thursday November 30 at Easton College, outside Norwich.
