In the UK a new campaigning organisation called farm has been launched by working farmers in order to represent independent + family farms.
This follows polling commissioned by farm which found that of the 500 farms surveyed across the nation, over 1/4 believe their interests are not represented by any current organisation and over 2/3rds want a new body to speak for 'family farms'.
It is not clear how the UK's powerful National Farmers' Union (NFU) has reacted to the founding of this new organisation...
