  • 30/09/2022: Scottish Rural Visas, English Vineyard, Flea Beetles and Pesticide Legislation
    The Scottish Government wants to create a 'bespoke rural visa' to allow remote communities - and farms - to attract people from abroad to work, but it needs the Westminster Government’s approval, Charlotte hears from a Scottish minister. One of the newest English vineyards has just opened in Suffolk, Catherine Scarff left a job in the music industry, studied viticulture, and joined the family farm to start a new venture. Some agronomists reckon farmers will lose 20% of their crop to the flea beetle this year, one farmer near Cambridge explains how he has been affected. Meanwhile, as the Government plans to revoke pesticide legislation - when it removes EU laws from the statute books - ministers say that this will not come at the expense of high environmental standards, Matt Shardlow Chief Executive of Buglife is not convinced. Presenter: Charlotte Smith Producer: Alun Beach Editor: Dimitri Houtart
  • 29/09/22 Bird Flu, On-shore wind, Wine tourism
    More bird flu outbreaks and more restrictions. 64,000 turkeys are being culled in the latest outbreak, this time in Norfolk. The Government says it's going to relax planning laws about where on-shore wind farms can be built, but some rural councils are not sure they want them. All week we're looking at UK wine. Most is English, but there are about five vineyards in Scotland and thirty in Wales - that's according to the tourism organisation Visit Wales. Visitors are a growing part of the business model for producers in the Welsh wine regions. Presented by Charlotte Smith and produced by Beatrice Fenton.
  • 27/09/22 - Defra announce a 'rapid review' to farm policy, new Welsh Agriculture Bill, berry wine in Scotland
    Is the government going to ditch paying farmers to meet environmental goals and give them money per hectare instead? We hear from the academic who thought up the 'public money for public goods' policy. And the Welsh government launches its new Agriculture Bill. Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Beatrice Fenton.
  • 26/09/22: Reservoir Opposition, Farmers Abused, UK Wine
    A plan to flood more than a thousand acres of Lincolnshire farmland to create a new reservoir is being met with strong opposition. More than 2000 people have signed a petition opposing Anglian Water’s plans for the site near Sleaford. The company says the facility is vital to secure future water supplies as our climate changes and as demand for water grows. Farming Today regularly reports on concerns for farmer's mental health - and now a study suggests farmers are also regularly being subjected to abusive behaviour from members of the public. Researchers from the University of Exeter say it is leading to a "strong sense of disconnection" with the wider public. We speak to the Farming Community Network, which says it wants to do more to connect farmers with the communities that live near by. And as we start a whole week looking at UK wine production, we find out how climate change has been affecting the types of wine being produced. Presented by Charlotte Smith Produced in Bristol by Natalie Donovan
  • 22/09/2022: Rural Energy Relief, Charles as King on the Countryside
    A pub owner and other rural businesses give their reaction to the Energy Bill Relief Scheme. Meanwhile people living in homes in the countryside relying on heating oil fear for the future. And King Charles, will his views on farming and the countryside be so publicly aired now he has ascended to the throne? Presenter: Caz Graham Producer: Alun Beach Editor: Dimitri Houtart
