The farming industry is uniting to celebrate British, Red Tractor food in September, and is urging as many farmers as possible to get involved.
Now in its fifth year, Red Tractor Week is shaping up to be better than ever and will provide a great platform to tell shoppers and the media about all the hard work that goes in to producing quality British assured food.
During Red Tractor Week a number of events will be held in supermarkets across the UK providing farmers with an opportunity to talk positively to shoppers about what the Red Tractor logo means. Red Tractor Assurance, NFU, NFU Scotland, National Pig Association, NFYFC, Ladies in Pigs, Ladies in Beef and the National Sheep Association are working together now to organise these events.
Want to get involved?
Dates and locations of stores hosting events are being finalised. Details will be released as soon as they are ready along with information about how to get involved.
Get active on social media
There is plenty you can be doing on social media in the build up to Red Tractor Week. You can talk to consumers about how their food is produced, what you are doing on your farm at the moment and how you ensure that your products meet Red Tractor standards. You can tell consumers to look out for farmer facing events throughout Red Tractor Week in September and use the hashtag #GreatBritishFood2016
You can follow Red Tractor on Twitter – @RTFarmers – to keep up to date with all the latest news.

The club (pictured right) claimed victory in the final of the men's competition with a hard fought win over last year's champions, Whitley Chapel YFC of Northumberland. Earlier in the day, the club's youngsters covered themselves in glory by finishing second in the junior competition, narrowly losing to Crucorney YFC of Gwent.
It was yet another successful day for Wales' Young Farmers, with the ladies competition being won by Trecastle YFC of Brecknock. The Welsh club claimed victory in the final over Haldon Group YFC in Devon, who went on to compete at the National Outdoor Tug of War Championships. Haldon Group YFC also represented England in the Ladies 560kg at the British and Irish Outdoor Tug of War Championships in Llandrindod Wells in August. The team recently received bronze medals in their first season of the National League for the Ladies 520kg and 560kg.
A full list of Results from the Tug of War finals are available on the NFYFC website.
