PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger

Real Farmers Labour

 

MOST FOOD COMES FROM FARMS

AND FARMS ARE MORE THAN A TORY RURAL AFFAIR

From Apprentices to Tenants – From Family Farms to Horticulture

LABOUR HAS SUPPORTED FOOD,FARMING & FISHING, THE COUNTRYSIDE AND  THE ENVIRONMENT

With less than 48 hours until voters take to the polls in Thursday’s General Election, we spell out the UK parties’ farming pledges. See our comprehensive table for the full run-down.
Farmers are being urged to ensure they have their paperwork in order as cross-compliance inspections start this month, despite much confusion over the new rules.
The UK dairy industry has already surpassed 2020 targets to improve energy efficiency. Data collected by Dairy Energy Savings, which runs the dairy sector’s Climate Change Agreement scheme, shows the sector has achieved a 15 per cent improvement in its energy efficiency since 2008.
And grain trading firm Gleadell is set to complete loading of what is believed to be the biggest cargo of wheat ever to leave the UK – 66,000 tonnes.
The wheat is sourced from Lincolnshire and East Midlands farms, an amount equivalent to about 6,500 hectares (16,000 acres) of the crop.
