A new survey has revealed 68 per cent of people in England and Wales have either a favourable or very favourable view of UK farmers – a rise of eight per cent in the past three years.

Open Farm Sunday saw a record breaking year in 2015, with over 250,000 guests attending events throughout the country, emphasising the positive view the country has of UK farmers.

NFU president, Meurig Raymond, said he believed the growing positive trend was down to farmers and growers being more open and championing what they do.

“I am seeing more and more how farmers are speaking directly to the public. Whether that’s capitalising on social media to share with them compelling reasons to back British farming and buy British food, or the recent successes seen during Open Farm Sunday where farmers throw open their gates to speak directly to the public about what they do.”

OnePoll’s survey revealed more than 90 per cent of people said they thought agriculture was important to the UK economy, and 75 per cent believed farmers had a beneficial or very beneficial effect; a rise of 3 per cent from 2012.

Mr Raymond added: “Now, at a time when farm gate prices are low, retailers and government must also continue showing their support and visibly back British farming.”
