Social media celebrates thousands of #PeopleInFarming

 

Social media have been celebrating the thousands who make up the British farming industry

Social media have been celebrating the thousands who make up the British farming industry

The farming industry is celebrating the work 476,000 people do on Britain’s farms as part of a new campaign to highlight its achievements.

The #PeopleInFarming initiative commenced this morning (20 March) on social media and aims to shine a light on the thousands of people who work in the industry.

People from across the UK are taking to Twitter to post videos and pictures explaining what part they play in feeding the nation, using the hashtag #PeopleInFarming.

NFU President Minette Batters said the British farming industry is made up of “thousands of highly skilled and passionate” people who work every day to put “safe, traceable and affordable” food on plates.

“It is not only farmers and growers that deserve recognition, but our families who support us, the vets who look after our animals, the pickers and packers who work on our farms every harvest, and many more,” Mrs Batters said.

“Roles in the industry vary from vehicle technicians to agronomists, and each and every one is vital in creating a safe and successful food and farming sector.

“This campaign is a great way to reconnect the public with the talented and innovative people who provide their food.

“The NFU is encouraging all people involved in farming to take to Twitter and let the public know why they’re proud to be #PeopleInFarming.”

The National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC) said it is “proud” to be working with the next generation of farmers who are part of the 476,000 #PeopleInFarming.

“Not all YFC members farm but many learn industry skills through YFCs, gaining understanding and appreciation of this amazing sector,” the NFYFC tweeted.

‘Inspiration’

Farmers and those in the industry have been sharing their story on social media about their everyday farming life.

19-year-old vegetable grower Hannah Rebecca tweeted: “Me and my dad both farm together in east Lincolnshire on a smaller scale growing a variety of veg. From Leeks to coloured carrots, dwarf beans and much more! #BritishFoodIsGreat”

Hannah Binns, a 21-year-old farmer’s daughter from Lancashire said: “Incredibly proud of my granddad who is 90 next month and still farming every single day – he’s my inspiration!

Dairy farmer Abi Reader, who milks 190 cows in Wales, said she is “proud” to be one of the 476,000 #PeopleInFarming.

She tweeted: “Our farm employs 2 full time, 2 part time staff, 190 dairy cows. Between us we produce over 1.5 million litres milk per year – #BritishFoodisGreat.”

Matthew Denby, who farms in near Alford, Lincolnshire, tweeted: “My name is Matt Denby. I farm with my brother, parents and grandparents.

“We produce both milling and feed Wheat, feed Barley and Oilseed Rape as well as breeding Pedigree Limousin Cattle – #BritishFoodisGreat.”
