Farming matters

Farmers produce our food, tend our landscapes and manage, preserve and protect our precious natural resources. Their expertise and knowledge is profoundly valuable.

In a fast-changing world with a growing population and intense pressure on our land we must all listen to what they have to say and learn what we can from them.
Farmers' role as environmental guardians cannot be underestimated. Environmental Stewardship is Defra’s agri-environment scheme which provides funding to farmers and other land managers in England who manage their land effectively. Administered by Natural England, the scheme aims to:
  • Conserve wildlife (biodiversity)
  • Maintain and enhance landscape quality and character
  • Protect the historic environment and natural resources
  • Promote public access and understanding of the countryside
  • Protect natural resources.

We support this.
