I am pleased to support the local community and National Farmers’ Union in the ‘Back British Farming’ campaign day today.
Farming is the backbone of the rural economy and supports a number of businesses across the constituency as well as making a huge contribution to North East Cambridgeshire.
The Fens are home to over 4000 farms and some 250 businesses producing and distributing a diverse range of produce. For example over one third of all vegetables grown in England and £232m of potatoes are grown here.
More information on how you can ‘Back British Farming’, can be found at the NFU’s website here.
