Company Profile

ACRES Burren Aran

Old Schoolhouse
Website Address:

Arising from the work of the award-winning Burren Programme and Caomhnú Árann projects, the ACRES Burren Aran Co-operation Project (BUA CP) works with farmers in managing and conserving the rich ecological, archaeological, geological and cultural heritage of the Burren, Aran Islands and part of south-west Galway. BUA CP is financed by the EU and the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine (DAFM) through the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

BUA promotes farming for conservation through result- and reward-based initiatives. Farmers receive payments for species-rich pastures where fields with higher scores receive higher payments. Farmers are also funded for carrying out site enhancement works that can help farmers manage their farm, address environmental threats to specific habitats and so contribute to increasing their environmental health scores. Such tasks, nominated by the farmer, include removing immature scrub from species-rich pastures, repairing walls, installing gates, improving water supplies, controlling invasive species and enhancing access.
