NFU Cymru to host dedicated events for tenant farmers

07 October 2022

Hillside in Wales

NFU Cymru has arranged two events for tenant farmers in Wales to discuss how the latest policy proposals from Welsh Government will affect the tenanted sector.

The two meetings will provide the opportunity for NFU Cymru to gather feedback from tenant farmers in order to influence the development of the proposed Sustainable Farming Scheme and ensure it supports all active farmers, including those who do not own the land they farm.

When and where

  1. Vale of Clwyd Livestock Centre, Ruthin, LL15 1PB on Wednesday 26 October at 7pm.
  2. Monmouthshire Livestock Centre, Bryngwyn, Raglan, NP15 2BH on Thursday 27 October at 7pm.

What to expect

The meetings will feature contributions and updates from NFU Cymru President Aled Jones, the NFU Cymru policy team, the NFU’s in-house rural surveyor and a farmer panel.

NFU Cymru Tenants Forum Representative Elwyn Evans said:

“The introduction of Welsh Government’s landmark Agriculture Bill signifies a new dawn of change and opportunity for Welsh farmers. But is it vital that future policy works for all farmers in Wales, including those who do not own the land that they farm.

“These meetings provide an ideal opportunity for tenant farmers in Wales to hear from NFU Cymru’s speakers about how this new legislation and the associated Sustainable Farming Scheme could impact those in the tenant sector. The event also offers the chance for tenant farmers to ask questions relating to their tenancy agreement and learn more about the NFU Cymru offer in terms of support for the sector, so I’d strongly recommend all tenant farmers try to attend one of these events if they’re able to.”
