About this blog

Farming affects every one of us, from the food that we eat, to the countryside we walk in and it’s a sector that’s going through a once in a generation change.

As we prepare to move away from the EU’s Common Agriculture Policy towards a wholly new approach for the agricultural industry, we are committed to working together with the industry to deliver one of the biggest industry changes to any sector anywhere in the UK.

Our policy includes a number of different elements that will allow us and the sector to invest in the environment, productivity, farmer resilience, plant and tree health and animal health and welfare. As we work with farmers, land managers and stakeholders to refine these schemes further, we will continue to share our current thinking, wider work, policy progress and developments in the wider farming world.
