The future for farming and nature
You have the power to shape a better future for farming. Let’s restore the thriving wildlife and healthy environment that food production depends on.
Around 75% of the UK is farmed, and farmland birds and wildlife have been hard-hit by policies which control how that land is managed.
Did you know we could have a farming system that grows our food, and improves the environment? Plenty of farmers want to see this happen too – together we need to tell our Governments that we want to see a sustainable, productive countryside rich in wildlife. Join us to fight for a farming system that is good for farmers, good for people and good for nature.

Why farming matters
Just as you depend on the UK's farmland for the food you eat every day, so does much of our wildlife.
Agriculture and land-use
The day-to-day decisions made by farmers are influenced greatly by agricultural policy at the national level and, despite the results of the referendum, at the European Union level too in the immediate future.
