Farming Matters Newsletter – Winter 2019

Welcome to our Winter edition of Farming Matters which, like many things, has been delayed by Brexit and the General Election. However, after what seems to have been months and months of rain and political uncertainty, Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party have won a landslide victory, which, to coin a phrase, will allow him to ‘Get Brexit done’. Although not even Boris has been able to stop the rain yet!

The question as we enter a new year and a new decade is what this will mean for Britain and British agriculture and can the industry now move on with certainty? Having been fearful of another hung parliament and a continuation of the state of flux that has hamstrung the economy for far too long, the lifting of the political fog has to be a good thing.

As we enter what I hope might be another ’roaring twenties’ and start our next 100 years, we look forward to continuing to work with the farming community to face challenges that will not doubt arise head on and also to look to help you grasp opportunities as they arise.

As ever we live in interesting times but here’s to a positive 2020!
