Gove has pigs ear of a plan to help British Farmers

Micheal Gove is a man with a plan, in fact many plans, including a cunning one to sell pig’s ears to the Chinese.

The latest edition of Farm Business takes a detailed look at how he intends to stand up for British farmers in Brexit trade talks and his thoughts on a domestic agricultural policy, including a payment cap, live exports, post-Brexit regulation – and pig’s ears. And it asks in more detail whether we will ever really free ourselves from the grip of Brussels regulation.

This edition of Farm Business also reflects on the issue of waning consumer trust in the food we eat and what can be done about it. This includes a world first in certifying and recording provenance of farm produce, and a thoughtful assessment, from Hertfordshire farmer Stuart Roberts, based partly on his experience across the supply chain, of what more farmers can do to help improve consumer confidence.
