Visit to Peels Farm, Rocklands – Mid Norfolk NFU meeting

Farming is one of our region’s most vital sectors and, having grown up on my stepfather’s farm and represented a largely rural constituency for over thirteen years, I have always placed great importance on supporting our local agricultural industries.

That’s why I was delighted to visit Peels Farm in Rocklands again this past week to meet with members of the local Mid Norfolk NFU and discuss a range of issues from:

  • Farm Diversification and Renewable Energy Production
  • Farming skills training for local people
  • Bird Flu (Avian Influenza)
  • Biological Controls and Protections
  • The impact of road closures on agricultural businesses

Our farmers not only produce the food we eat, they also play a key role in protecting and enhancing the landscapes and habitats that make our area such a nice place to live. I am determined to do all I can to ensure our local farmers, who know their land best and have a wealth of farming expertise, are heard at the very highest levels.

Rest assured, I will continue to fight for East Anglian farming here in Norfolk, and in Westminster.
