With 44,000 responses to Defra’s consultation on the future of farming after Brexit, it’s clear that this crucial issue matters for many. We agree that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to transform how this country’s land is managed to better support a thriving countryside.

A summary of our views is in this recent blog post, and you can read our whole consultation response here.

We look forward to seeing Defra’s response to the consultation. We’ll continue working with our tenant farmers and other organisations to help secure the best possible future to support the interlinked aims of nature’s recovery and thriving, sustainable farm businesses.
