Winter Journal: UK Food Policy debate

The Winter Farmers Club Journal features UK Food Policy debate, Club Cup winner Ian Howie, Club visits to California and Herefordshire, Ladies Lunch, charity work, Harvest Festival, over-fishing, and details of a wide range of events planned for 2020.

How the UK realigns its food system post-Brexit is the focus for a major piece of work currently underway. Farmers Club members heard from review chairman Henry Dimbleby, with the debate reported in full in this Journal.

The Winter issue of the Farmers Club Journal – now arriving with members – also reports on two tremendously successful Club tours to California and Herefordshire, visiting exceptional food and drinks producers and enjoying the best the two contrasting regions have to offer.

Further articles explore the important food chain issue of over-fishing, just some of the charitable activities undertaken by Farmers Club members and a statistical insight into the scale of the charitable support provided to the UK farming sector. Plus a review of the sumptuous “Food at the Farmers Club” book – now available priced £29.00.

The Club’s wonderful Harvest Festival Service in London, and the Bowl Food Supper afterwards, is profiled. So too are the tremendously vibrant Under 30s section’s most recent activities, including a farm walk around Rutland and an inspiring talk from former NFU President Meurig Raymond.
