Farming unions from across the UK will meet tomorrow to start mapping out the future for farming post-Brexit.

The presidents of the four unions, including Allan Bowie from NFU Scotland, will meet at NFU England and Wales headquarters at Stoneleigh in Warwickshire.

Ahead of the meeting, the unions issued a statement where they pledged to work together to ensure farmers’ interests were protected in the UK’s negotiated exit from Europe.

“We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to develop the right policies and the best trade deals. Our role now, working together, is to show leadership across our respective borders and help to shape our future,” said the unions.

They said agriculture was the “bedrock of the UK’s largest manufacturing industry worth £108billion”.

“With this as our mandate we will continue to push our devolved governments to ensure food and farming is front and centre of any new domestic agriculture policy and for its potential as a real force to deliver the UK’s public goods is recognised,” added the unions.
