Nature friendly farming can deliver good food for all

Sustain member NFFN’s new Rethink Food campaign examines the myths, challenges and opportunities presented to farmers in the current food system. The first report in this campaign, Rethink Food: The Need For Change, maps the legacy of our food system’s past, and explains why we need to change how we farm our land and feed our nations.

The Nature Friendly Farming Network is led by farmers across the UK with a passion for sustainable farming and nature. 

Over the past two years, the war in Ukraine, the COVID-19 pandemic, and Brexit have exposed the fragility of a food system that is close to breaking point. We find ourselves at a critical moment in time; the need for change is more urgent now than ever before.

Farmers and society have the opportunity to move forward to a future where nature-friendly farming is seen, acknowledged and valued as a key solution to the climate and ecological emergency whilst achieving real, long-term dietary health, food and nutritional security. Nature-friendly farming techniques can underpin the wellbeing of the UK. This is a critical moment for policymakers to support systemic change in the food system – to rethink food.
