Meeting local Farmers

It was great met with local members of the National Farmers Union at St Radigunds Abbey Farm to discuss support for local farms.

I toured the farm with NFU Branch Chairman Peter Moynan and other local farmers. It's a really beautiful landscape and fantastic local asset. We discussed boosting Britain's food security, stopping the spread of bovine TB and cutting red tape on local farms.

Our local farmers have had a tough time over the past few years – TB, changing climate and overseas competition. They work long and hard providing us the food and crops we need. It's right we support them in the tough times.
