The Countryside Alliance backs calls by Environment Secretary, George Eustice, for a 'Land Army' to help feed the nation during the coronavirus crisis.

Our farmers and producers need you to help bring home the harvest and feed the nation as travel restrictions and tighter border controls around the world are having a major impact on the number of people willing or able to travel to the UK during the COVID-19 outbreak.

It is crucial that growers can provide enough British produce to our supermarkets and local shops, and need a 80,000 strong UK workforce to help farms harvest crops. 

The soft fruit-picking season is due to get fully underway in April and vegetable growers are already beginning to crop. These paid positions could provide an income for students, job seekers and anyone who has been laid off work due to the impact of COVID-19, such as those working in hospitality and catering.
