Readers take the battle to Newark & Notts

FW’s Food Miles campaign reached the Newark and Notts Show this week in the safe hands of Nottinghamshire farmers Andy Guy (a Livestock Farmer Focus writer) and Ian Sharman.

The NFU stand at the show promoted the high standards to which British food is produced. An NFU spokesman said:

“We’re celebrating the food grown on our doorsteps.

So instead of buying beans from Africa or raspberries from Chile, we’d like customers to reduce their food miles and buy straight from the producer.”
