Our hills and uplands are elevated areas of less favoured agricultural land. These Less Favoured Areas (LFAs) are suitable for extensive livestock production because of their geography and their climate: they contain the highest, wettest and most windy areas in the whole of England and Wales. Our uplands forum leads the way with our livestock board to make the case for meaningful government policies that help the sector thrive.
Our hill farmers have shaped some of the most beautiful parts of Britain for generations, acting as custodians of precious environmental amenities while providing a crucial part of our livestock industry.
