Agriculture Bill consultation workshops

Farming and crofting matter in Scotland. They’re vital to sustaining our rural communities, to public health, to local economies and to meeting our climate and nature goals. Each year we spend over £500 million of public money on farm subsidy, supporting farmers and crofters. What can we do to ensure this money is supporting our broader ambitions for Scotland?

The Scottish Government are currently consulting on their proposals for agriculture. Our workshops are part of the official consultation. They are designed to gather views from the people of Scotland. Anyone is welcome to attend.

The workshops will allow you to better understand Government’s Vision for Agriculture, and how it translates into practice. You will also have a chance to work with others and share your views about the best use of public money.

The Scottish Government has stated: “we should not shy away from being clear that we are on a journey of significant transformation.” This is our first chance, following Brexit, to develop our own approach to supporting farmers and crofters in Scotland. It is essential that we gather the views of the people of Scotland to ensure this transition has our shared priorities and values at its heart.
