The making of our Back British Farming Flag
What do you get if you add together 200 farmers, a field, a tractor and hundreds of red, white and blue food and drink props representing every sector of British farming? An enormous Union Flag of course!
Farmers are passionate, proud and dedicated to provide the best quality produce for you every single day of the year. So as part of our Back British Farming campaign we joined up with the Worcestershire Young Farmers Clubs to create this iconic image and remind the country of the vital role farmers play in keeping us all fed – as well as delivering lots of environmental and economic benefits to Britain.
