About #FeedTheNation

Farmers Weekly and our partners have kickstarted an awareness campaign to show the public how farmers are working tirelessly to produce the food we all need to live and stay healthy.

We know our farmers are working hard to produce enough food for us all to eat in trying circumstances. This is what they have always done and will continue to do during this health crisis.

We believe that it is time for consumers to remember where their food comes from – hard-working farms.

No matter what part you play in UK food production, whether it’s planting a new crop, picking vegetables or rearing livestock, help us raise awareness by sharing the view from your farm on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

It has never been more important to raise awareness of the hard work that goes into keeping our nation going. Use the hashtag #FeedTheNation and join the conversation on social media.
