Moorlands MP, Karen Bradley has today shown support for British food and farming on Back British Farming Day, recognising the crucial role farmers play in producing food for the nation and caring for the countryside.
The National Farmers’ Union (NFU) provided MPs with a Back British Farming wool and wheatsheaf pin badge to publicly display their support at a crucial time for the agricultural sector with trade negotiations, including crucial talks with the EU, ongoing.
The UK food and farming industry is worth more than £120 billion to the national economy and employs more than 4 million people.
Commenting, Karen, said:
“I am extremely proud to wear the Back British Farming pin badge in support of the farming sector that is so valuable not just to the Moorlands but to the whole country.
“I would like to thank all our local farmers and those working in the wider food supply chain who made sure supermarket shelves were kept stocked and the nation was fed during this difficult time. I am very grateful for all that they have done and continue to do.”
