Fair Trade?- The Future for British Farmers
Nigel is a recent President of the Scottish National Farmers Union and lives in the Borders. He will provide his view of how ‘fairness’ might impact on the future for British farmers. Nigel has a keen insight into how and why the farming industry in Britain will change over the coming years. He will assess the impact of economic pressures, the spread of technology in farming practice and the likely impact on food standards. He will air his thoughts on Brexit and how this will affect Scottish farming.
