We now have a huge opportunity in Northern Ireland to make Nature Friendly Farming the future. The Department of Agriculture Environment and Rural Affairs DAERA) have recently released their proposals for the future of agricultural policy in Northern Ireland and would like input from all relevant stakeholders. We cannot miss this significant opportunity to transform Northern Irish agriculture, to help farms evolve and thrive, whilst restoring and protecting our natural heritage.
With this, we encourage all members of the Nature Friendly Farming Network to respond to this important engagement. The more we make our voices heard, the more DAERA will listen to those of us who are calling for a radical change in food and farming policy.
You can make your voice heard through by participating with our partners in Nature Matters Northern Ireland through their online e-action which can be found here: https://e-activist.com/page/27490/action/1?ea.tracking.id=email
Or by submitting your own detailed response through the DAERA website which can be found here: https://www.daera-ni.gov.uk/consultations/northern-ireland-future-agricultural-policy-framework
