Supporting our farmers through Brexit

Many farmers voted for Brexit out of frustration with EU bureaucracy. However, Brexit also brings particular uncertainty to farmers because many also receive EU agricultural grants, and benefit from the EU imposing tariffs on imports from other countries. I grew up on a smallhold farm in Fowlmere, which grew mainly wheat and potatoes, and know how hard it can be. If elected, I am keen to champion the farming community, and in particular ensure they have the certainty and support they need as we move out from the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy.
