The NFU has conducted farming's most significant consultation over the impact of Brexit and what a future domestic farming policy should look like.
At an NFU Council meeting, we presented a bold, ambitious vision for British food and farming post-Brexit; one that ensures farm businesses are central to a dynamic food chain and deliver a countryside that works for everyone.
NFU President Meurig Raymond said the government must not ignore the economic importance of the farming sector. It’s the bedrock of the UK’s largest manufacturing industry - food and drink - which is worth £108billion and employs 3.9million people.
