Today in Parliament, National Farmers Union (NFU) organised an event to celebrate Back British Farming Day to show widespread support for the farming sector.
The day is also a celebration and appreciation of a job ranked by the British public as one of the most important and well-respected professions.
To mark the occasion, MP Crabb wore the emblem of Back British Farming Day in Parliament; a wheatsheaf pin badge made of wool and wheat sourced from UK farms.
Preseli Pembrokeshire MP Stephen Crabb commented:
“It is always a pleasure to go along to the Back British Farming Day event and meet with NFU representatives.”
“Over the summer I met with members of the local farming community at the County Show and out-and-about in Pembrokeshire. Amidst a changing and often challenging landscape, it was useful to feed in their views and experiences about the future of agriculture.”
“Farming is vital to the Pembrokeshire economy and today was an excellent opportunity to celebrate Welsh food and farming.”
