Love British Food and British Food Fortnight work with a number of farming ambassadors to help promote British food to the public and tell the important story around it. Including Co-op Farming Pioneers and NFYC the campaign harnesses the combined energies of the farmers, creating a living national advertisement for British food.

My name is Josh Dowbiggin and I am Junior Agricultural Manager at the Co-op and member of Co-op's Young Farming Pioneers.

My name is Whizz Middleton and I am an arable farmer in Bedfordshire.

My family has farmed for hundreds of years.  Our farm is entirely arable, with the main crops being wheat, barley and oilseed rape, plus some beans and peas.  Although incredibly hard work, it is our way of life and our farm is a great part of the community.

In order to remain sustainable, it is crucial people know what they are eating and where it has come from.  The more the customer learns about their food the more interested they become in farming.
