The introduction of the landmark Agriculture Act in England has been welcomed by NFYFC after years of consultation with the farming community, including gathering the views of YFC members.

NFYFC’s Chairman Dewi Parry said: 

“This is a landmark moment for agriculture as this Bill maps out the future of farming in England.

“The new system will affect many YFC members who are involved in farming as well as new entrants looking to succeed in this sector. I commend all of the YFC members who lobbied government about their concerns over food standards. The views of YFC members were also shared with Defra over the last two years within consultation responses and engagement events.

“We also backed the NFU’s campaign to ensure that food production and security was included in this Bill and are indebted to them for their achievements in getting a Trade and Agriculture Commission established.

“Challenges remain for the farming sector and NFYFC will continue to represent its members’ views as we step forward into this new chapter for agriculture.”
