Farm for Scotland's Future
Make farming work for nature, climate and people
Farming is vital to Scotland’s future. As well as producing food, farmers and crofters manage three quarters of Scotland’s land.
But many current farming practices cause pollution and severely deplete our wildlife. Farming is also one of the top three sources of climate emissions in Scotland.
The Scottish government spends more than half a billion pounds on farm funding every year. Yet it is failing to help farmers and crofters to protect and restore Scotland’s nature or tackle climate change.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Next year, with the introduction of new Scottish agriculture legislation, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to replace the decades-old system of farm funding.
More than 20 environment charities, members of Scottish Environment LINK, have joined with farmers’ groups to demand a better system. We’re calling on the Scottish government to create a farm funding system that’s fair for farmers and crofters, and that works for nature, the climate, and all of Scotland’s people.
