10 years after its initial launch, the Campaign for the Farmed Environment (CFE) will be relaunched as Championing the Farmed Environment to begin a new phase of its development.
The government’s 25-year Environment Plan calls on the farming community to balance safe, traceable and high-quality British food with the protection and enhancement of the British countryside. In the context of this increased focus on environmental public goods in everyday farming practices, the work of the CFE is more important and relevant than ever.
Under its new title CFE will continue to work with industry partners and partner initiatives to support farmers to deliver environmental goods as part of a productive and profitable business. We continue to work closely with the Voluntary Initiative and Tried & Tested to provide practical, accessible guidance on how farmers can incorporate good environmental management into their farm business planning.
This includes taking care of the natural resources on farm which support a healthy natural environment. The CFE website* has been redesigned to make it easier to access the information farmers need to deliver environmental goods which work for their farms.
