Back British Farming on social media

To see how we talk to the public follow our pages below

Our Back British Farming channels are our public facing social media channels, showcasing farming and food. We share authentic member stories and celebrate everything that’s great about the beautiful landscape and healthy British food. It keeps the public informed about what our farmers do to maintain the countryside we all cherish and also educates people on where their food comes from.

We’re asking the public to Back British Farming by seeking out British produce and make a conscious effort to prioritise food that has been grown or reared in this country. By doing so, the public will be playing an important part in helping our farmers and growers to deliver more now as well as ensuring there are future generations of farmers.

In 2023 we launched our TikTok Back British Farming page. It is the leading short-form video platform where authenticity and realness are celebrated, and trends are born. As over 50% of the audience on TikTok are under 35 we are using this channel to bring a positive view of British farming in fun and authentic ways.

The aim of the Back British Farming TikTok channel is to put British farming on the radar of younger people and those who may not be familiar with farming. Our stories will help followers to consider farmers and where their food comes from.
