British farmers, particularly smaller livestock farms, rely on basic payment subsidies to stay in business and compete with cheaper imports. Unless farmers like Andrew have access to the funding they would have received in the EU, our British countryside is at risk and faces significant loss of habitat, species and conservation.
The government can help our farmers. They can promise a decent budget to help farmers in the transition. The government can ensure that farmers like Andrew can adequately plan for post-Brexit farming in the UK. They can relieve some of the uncertainty farmers are facing and ease their fears of going out of business.
Sign our petition calling on the government to protect farm incomes.
