Food and farming in the news

Big Farmland Bird Count 2019_60941

NFU President Minette Batters braved the rain at the launch of the Big Farmland Bird Count at her farm in Wiltshire this month, where she highlighted the importance of conserving bird species and  championed the great work our farmers do to protect and enhance the environment. 

As the latest Commons vote on amendments to the withdrawal agreement unfolded, Minette Batters’ reacted by stressing the need for action from the Government to provide certainty around the future of food and farming in Britain.

Minette appeared live from her farm on the Sky News Sophy Ridge on Sunday programme to talk about how a no-deal Brexit would impact the quality of our food in the UK should the Government implement 0% import tariffs post-Brexit.
