Gloucestershire NFU – Representing local farmers proud to produce your food
The NFU is the only organisation that champions the businesses of all farmers and growers in England and Wales. Our strength is in our numbers. With in-excess of 55,000 members, we are heard when it counts – locally, nationally and internationally. Every single member matters and makes the NFU stronger. A stronger NFU can be more influential, achieve more and give farming a more powerful and unified lobbying voice.
Today, the NFU is the most successful representation body for agriculture and horticulture with members covering two-thirds of the agricultural land in England and Wales. We’re here to give farmers a voice and protect their way of life now and in the future. Our purpose is to champion British agriculture and horticulture, to campaign for a stable and sustainable future for British farmers and to secure the best possible deal for our members.
In Gloucestershire we campaign on an enormous variety of issues; everything from the lack of good broadband connections in rural areas and fairer funding for the police to tackle rural crime to gaining commitments from leading retailers to stock more British produce and preventing the spread of pests and disease in our crops and livestock.
It is this local, on the ground lobbying work that gives us the clout at a national level to continue to tackle pressing issues such as Brexit, rural crime & educating the next generation of consumers.
Support your industry, protect your future. Join the NFU today. www.nfuonline.com @NFUTweets
