    The NFU is launching a new campaign to get consumers to buy British and so help farmers.

    It’s a three-year campaign that’ll be called ‘Farming Delivers for Britain’ and will focus on six areas – providing food, environmental benefits, economic growth, clean energy, careers and world-class animal welfare.

    With consumers more interetsed in food and (on the whole!) supportive of farmers, it strikes me it’s a good time to do this…

    Excellent idea, well done NFU, definitely the way forward!

    Proactive marketing.  I like it.

    Yes Tim I agree, but………….

    I have just hit the latest poll on this question and 95% of contributors disagree with you and I.

    This says so much about folk who come along here. It does not help when 95% out of 222 people on the poll take a view against the part of humanity that purchases their products.

    This type of thing is enough to make me go back to purchases at tesco as opposed to local farm shop, but I won’t.

    Why oh why do farmers: <1% of the population hate the other 99% so much.

    Why don’t farmers see themselves as part of the development of all mankind that went from hunter gathering to farming and so settle into populations that are now cities, based around organisation of society on principles of living together, that we call religions.

    I guess I never will understand………heh ho.

    Why is the NFU using a boat to convey Peter Kendall to Parliament? I know we’ve just had the wettest April on record but why a boat if the intention is to get a (land based) farming message across to MPs?

    Can you not see that you are contradicting yourself there, Motley, in your enthusiasm to knock British farmers?
    The poll is asking the question whether we think the public recognises the importance of agriculture to the economy, not whether we hate the public! If we thought everyone recognised farmings importance, there would be no need for a campaign to inform them.

    No, you will never understand if you don’t read the question properly motley! As an academic, I’d have thought you’d have this simple principle sussed!

    The poll shows that many of us think that our customers don’t understand our industry. That’s all! It said nothing what so ever about farmers hating the general public.

    I guess Old M’s prediction of you aging like a fine Port was a little optimistic…. or maybe you’ve aged too much and gone off like an old yogurt!

    You also have to bear in mind who actually responds to polls and the mood they were in when they responded.  For example I don’t think this forum in any way represents the majority of farmers in Carmarthenshire.

    When will the NFU ever learn they should stick to policy which is what they know something about and leave the communications and marketing to an external agency where they would know something about this. Again it shows negative campaigning which will turn off the general public. Again, what is the point that pointless kendal talking to the Thames rather than the general public. Another waste of money campaign, good one the publicity department within the mighty NFU

    I did say he had not reached full maturity yet. I have actually understood and more or less agreed with one or two of his posts in the last few months. Not this one though for the reasons already pointed out, and I am not sure sure that Tim is correct. I would say that consumers were more interested in their food source and more supportive of farmers 50 years ago than now.

    I do agree with branstonfen and Redcar though.

    The launch of this important and expensive 3 year campaign has been overshadowed by Kendal accusing antiGM campaigners of being like ‘book burning Nazis’ during his launch speech – a comment that was not relevant to the launch of  ‘Farming Delivers for Britain’ a campaign that will focus on six areas – providing food, environmental benefits, economic growth, clean energy, careers and world-class animal welfare.

    How much damage has Kendall’s intemperate and ill-considered attack on a single issue campaign group done to the message that ‘Farming Delivers for Britain’ ?

    ‘book burning ***

    Indeed invoking Godwin’s law before even starting.

    Thin line here before you slip into the farmer bashing rethoric of that ****** motley.

    I don’t know why he comes on to our web site with is view about farmers.

    Still at least Kendall enables a cofirmation bias for me, moterrly.

    Will this site really not print the word ‘nazi’? I’m amazed at that!
    I wonder what other words get automatically edited out?

    Oh….. it seems you can write Nazi without censorship. How come Branstonfen got little stars instead then?

    He only got three stars so I guess either he typed some three letter obscenity or was self-censoring!
