National Farmers' Union 1908

The National Farmers' Union has a primary purpose to champion British agriculture and campaign towards a stable and sustainable future for British farmers with an aim to secure the best possible deals in selling produce. The NFU offers insurance, advice and support to farmers around England and Wales through regional offices and are actively involved in educating young people about food and farming.
