Subsidies

‘You won’t get paid to own land any more’

Farmers must not expect future government handouts for nothing – and should shape their businesses to be more efficient post-Brexit.

“We are not doing a terribly good job considering the subsidies we get.”

Kit Papworth, Norfolk farmer

That was one of the suggestions made by Norfolk farmer Kit Papworth at an industry seminar examining the potential implications of Brexit on agricultural businesses.

Mr Papworth was the keynote speaker at a Business for Change seminar, held at the East Anglian headquarters of the National Farmers’ Union in Newmarket.
