Julian supports local producers through ‘Back British Farming’ Day 2021

September 17, 2021

Given the importance of farming and food production in North Yorkshire, I was very pleased to support the National Farmers Union’s ‘Back British Farming’ Day in Westminster this week.

The pandemic supermarket shopping experience, and more recent concerns over supply chains, have made us all more aware of the vital but often overlooked role of the nation’s farmers. Meanwhile, ongoing public discussion about new trade agreements with countries like Australia and America have highlighted the world-leading high standards of British food production, which I have acted to champion by voting against the government in Parliament where I have felt necessary.

Agriculture is also central to questions regarding climate change and protecting the environment. Our farming sector could actually reach ‘net zero’ carbon emissions by 2040, a whole 10 years ahead of the rest of the economy, while our beautiful Yorkshire landscapes are the creation of centuries of cultivation.

I was glad to meet Jeremy Clarkson at the event, whose new television show ‘Clarkson’s Farm’ has done so much to bring the realities of modern farming, and knowledge of its importance, to a wider audience.
