Back British Farming/#BiteIntoBritish gilets available – all proceeds go to FCN

New gilets carrying the important ‘Back British Farming’ and #BiteIntoBritish messages are on sale, with all proceeds going to farming charity the Farming Community Network (FCN).

The gilets, modelled here by Yorkshire pig producer Richard Longthorp and his grandson, are available on the Anna’s Happy Trotters website, and will be on sale at next week’s Great Yorkshire Show. They will also be sold at country shows throughout the summer.

They are sponsored by feed company ForFarmers, and the #BiteIntoBritish team behind the gilets has asked any allied industry company that would like their name on them for the next round of production to get in touch.

The #BiteIntoBritish gilets will be promoted at country shows throughout the summer, as the campaign to encourage more support from the supply chain and Government for the under-pressure pig sector continues.

The organisers described FCN as a ‘lifeline for our armers in recent times’ and urged the farming community and beyond to show its support.
