Our climate is in crisis. Our soils are degraded. Wildlife is declining. Habitats are being lost.
Now is the time to act. Can you help us?
With over 70% of the UK being agricultural land, the Nature Friendly Farming Network (NFFN) believes our sector can play a key role in reducing UK carbon emissions and reversing wildlife declines with the right support.
The NFFN have published a report demonstrating, through farmer case studies and surveys, the potential for farming systems that are sustainable both for farming and the environment.
Food and farming needs to change on a large scale to support a sustainable future for us all.
However, over 90% of farmers surveyed think that the farming industry is currently ill-equipped and under-resourced to build the movement and transition to sustainable food production, at scale.
This is where the NFFN can help.
We are an ever-growing community of farmers, organisations and the public providing a strong voice for sustainable farming. NFFN are committed to securing farming policies that support wildlife, mitigate climate change, will support sustainable agriculture and provide fairness for farmers. We believe agriculture needs to be profitable and sustainable, and farmers should receive adequate payments for undertaking environmental and nature friendly activities. We are committed to demonstrate to the wider public what farmers can do for wildlife, whilst still producing plentiful quality produce. We will seek to build markets for nature friendly farming products. We encourage transparency in food supply chains to allow people to make informed sustainable food choices. We demonstrate to decision makers the value of sustainable nature friendly farming to ensure there is support within government and the supply chain. We are building a knowledge base, share research and offer advice, support, and training. We have produced a guide on practical ways farmers can help achieve net-zero carbon targets.
This is an opportunity to help make a real difference to the future. By acting now to provide the finance for us to support farmers to make a positive impact for farming and the environment during these challenging times, you become part of the solution.
