The NFU is inviting MPs and farmers up and down the country to throw their weight behind Back British Farming Day, to celebrate our farming industry.Now in it’s fifth year, the iconic day will provide a focus to celebrate British farming values and highlight its importance to the UK economy. The NFU will be reminding politicians that British food and farming contributes over £120 billion to the UK economy each year and employs four million people.
This year it gives farmers an opportunity to promote British farmers commitment to high production standards, building on the success of the NFU’s food standards campaign which has been backed by over a million people.
This autumn will be a critical time for British food and farming as the Agriculture Bill returns to the House of Commons to be passed into law and trade negotiations continue with countries across the world. There has never been a more important time to highlight the crucial role farmers play in feeding the nation and caring for the countryside.
Bloomfields are urging everyone to support Back British Farming Day on Wednesday 9th September 2020.
