Back British Farming Day 13 September 2017


Back British Farming Day will take place on 13 September and is an opportunity for the NFU to demonstrate to all MPs and the public the importance of British farming. With Brexit negotiations underway, there has never been a more important time to back British farming. 

Did you know that the food and farming industry is worth £112 billion and employs 3.8 million people?

You can help by tweeting your MP on the day, asking them to wear their #backBritishfarming wheat pin badge at #PMQs. Don’t forget to include @NFUtweets!
