R.A.B.I wants people to stand up for British farmers by sitting down to a farmhouse breakfast.
The Farmhouse Breakfast campaign will run until the end of February 2016, with events peaking during Breakfast Week, January 24-31. Breakfast Week is organised by the Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) Cereals & Oilseeds.
Stephen Noble, Head of Fundraising & Development at R.A.B.I, said: “The concept is simple; we’re asking to people to organise or host a breakfast event, enjoy a good feed and help us to raise funds. By taking part in an event – or making a donation to R.A.B.I – you will be saying a great big thank you to British farmers.”
Many farming families rely on the breakfast industry to survive. Each year, around 1.9m hectares of wheat is grown in the UK – that’s almost the size of Wales – with around 124,000 hectares of oats also produced on British soil, more than the area of Berkshire! Every day, five million Brits will sit down to eat sausages.
