This year the 7th annual Back British Farming Day is on Wednesday 2 November! And there has never been a more important time to show support for Britain’s food producers.

All through the year we ask members, MPs and the public to show their support for British farming. Back British Farming Day on 2 November is a chance to celebrate all the great things about our industry.

As in previous years, we'll be asking MPs to wear our iconic wheatsheaf lapel pin badge to show their support for British farming.

Over the years the Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition and senior politicians have worn them proudly during debates and Prime Minister’s Questions.

How to get involved

Our communications team will be making sure that broadcast and print press and social media channels are full of content celebrating British farming.

We'll also be sharing some of the 3,000 photos that members of the public sent us in our Best of British Farming photo competition.

Of course, we want as many farmers and growers as possible to join in on social media by posting about the work they do and why they’re proud to produce food for the nation.

Or why not record a short video explaining how proud you are to be a custodian of the land and producer of great British food. Just use the hashtag #BackBritishFarmingDay on all of your posts.

You could even downloadable our sign – it's perfect for getting our message out too.

Just download and print your sign.

Community Farming Hero awards

We'll be announcing the overall regional winners in our inaugural Community Farming Hero awards at our event in Westminster on Back British Farming Day.

MPs have been nominating members from their constituencies who have gone above and beyond for their local community.

NFU President Minette Batters said: “British farmers and growers are often pillars of their communities. Whether it’s maintaining the landscapes people love to visit, helping neighbours in times of extreme weather or fundraising for local charities, NFU members often go the extra mile. With the help of MPs we're recognising and celebrating their invaluable contributions.”
