The NFU has launched the Future Farmers Survey, designed to gather the views of young adults aged 17 to 26 on careers in agriculture.

The survey is designed to identify any barriers or difficulties young British adults may face when considering a career in farming, in order to provide relevant advice and support to aspiring farmers.

Huw Hopkins, who helps lead the NFU’s Student & Young Farmer Ambassador Programme, said:

“The NFU wants to hear from young people who have ever considered a career in agriculture, regardless of whether they are now working in farming.

"The survey takes just a few minutes to complete, and will run throughout autumn 2020.

"The responses will inform our work to assist the next generation of farmers at this critical time of change for British agriculture.”
