AGRI working with Defra - Farming is changing

Farmers provide high-quality food while enhancing and protecting our countryside. Leaving the EU means we can shape English agricultural policy so it supports both endeavours.

NFYFC AGRI is encouraging all interested YFC members to come along to dedicated YFC regional events where Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural affairs) colleagues will be joining us to talk about their proposed changes for farming once we leave the EU, including the new Environmental Land Management scheme.

This is a great opportunity to understand how these changes will affect you directly, share your regional knowledge and have your say on what the future of farming should look like.

This is just part of the NFYFC annual Defra grant work which helps to provide members with a range of opportunities for gaining information, skills and training to help with career or study opportunities.

You can find information on how farming is changing here.
