South Lakes MP Tim Farron is one of the first MPs in the country to sign the National Farming Union’s Back British Farming Charter.

The NFU is urging the public to help turn around a decline in self-sufficiency – we now produce just 62 per cent of our own food.

If all the food produced in Britain in a year was stored and eaten from January 1, supplies would run out on August 14.
