The NFU represents nearly 50,000 farmers in England and Wales. An important part of our remit is to promote an understanding of the importance of farming and of modern farming methods. Our core campaign ‘Back British Farming’ champions the role that British farmers play in producing safe, traceable, quality domestic food. As part of that it is important to us that children grow up with a real understanding of the role farmers play in Britain and they form their opinions based on informed knowledge and understanding. The NFU runs a children-focused educational roadshow ‘Let’s Talk Farming’ and we provide resources for school children to help them gain a greater understanding of how farming works in 21st century Britain. We are also pleased to be a core funder of the charity, Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) and a partner of Countryside Classroom.
