Farming in Wales
Together with our tenants we look after 46,000 hectares of farmland in Wales
Our response to the Agriculture Bill
“The White Paper is a crucial milestone for farming, forestry, people and the environment in Wales.
We are encouraged to see proposals to pay farmers and land managers for the environmental benefits that they can deliver, underpinned by a commitment to effective regulation.
We face a climate and nature crisis that needs a bold response to restore our natural environment, which in turn can secure a sustainable future for farming.
In the coming months we would like to see a clear road map for the development of the scheme, with a commitment to prepare and support farmers and land managers through the transition.
We will be considering the detail over the coming weeks and responding to the consultation in due course.”
