Following on from my last post about my uncle who is a British farmer, (Take a Moment – Fair Trade for British Farmers) it has come to my attention that I’m certainly not the only person who cares about the fact our farmers are making a loss on every pint of milk they produce. We need a minimum price for milk paid to our British farmers.
A petition was shared on Facebook by my friend & farmer Em which I signed & shared immediately. It is urging the Government to ensure a minimum payment to our farmers for the milk they produce.
I’ve seen a heartfelt letter shared on Facebook & spoken to Mum’s at the preschool gates about it. It is so frustrating that consumers & the every day person want to see farmers paid a minimum price but feeling unable to do anything about it.
Signing the petition is something we can do & literally takes seconds. If you think it’s not right that a farmer should make a loss on every pint of milk they sell, please sign this petition & spread the word amongst your friends & family.
We need the Government to know that we care about our farmers, these are hard working people who invest so much time, money & energy to maintain our British countryside & provide us with home grown produce.
Sign the petition here:
Also please look out for the British flag on the products you buy in the supermarkets, buying British drives up demand & therefore a better price for the producer.
