What we believe

  1. We fully support the need for a viable rural economy in general and a viable farming economy in particular.
  2. We understand and empathise with the financial difficulties that many of our farmers are facing, especially on smaller family-run farms.
  3. We are happy to support any farm diversification proposals provided they do not carry a significant negative impact (environmental, financial or otherwise) on the surrounding community, including other businesses.
  4. We will actively campaign against proposals for intensive rearing of chickens in large sheds where there will be tangible damage to our environment and property and negligible benefit to the community.
