South Holland’s growers have a chance next Wednesday to quiz European election candidates on policies that affect their farm businesses.

Ahead of the European Elections on May 22, the NFU has invited the candidates for major parties in the East Midlands to speak at a hustings at Greetham Valley Golf Club, near Oakham, at 6.30pm.

NFU’s regional director for the East Midlands Richard Hezlet said: “The NFU and its sister UK farming organisations launched their manifesto for the European elections, Backing the Business of British Farming, in April.

“There are some important questions for our MEP candidates to answer, not least those concerning sustainable and profitable food production.”
