Farmers care for the land they farm and know that a healthy environment is essential for sustainable farming.
The Campaign for the Farmed Environment aims to pull together the huge amount of work that farmers and land managers already do to encourage wildlife, to benefit soil and water resources and to support farmland birds.
The CFE encourages voluntary management that will benefit the environment, whilst ensuring efficient and profitable food production.
A true partnership approach, the CFE is supported by many organisations committed to both agriculture and the environment. The partners recognise the importance of managing the farmed environment.
The Campaign also collaborates with other voluntary industry-led initiatives like the Greenhouse Gas Action Plan, Tried & Tested and The Voluntary Initiative to demonstrate how the industry collectively takes responsibility for achieving environmental benefit alongside profitable farming.
The Campaign was established in 2009; details on its history can be found here.
