Small family farms feed 70% of the World population on 25% of the farmland, this includes Crofters.
Farmland is being consolidated into bigger and bigger units. Watch this space..... its won't be long before the Archer's farm," Brookfield" is swallowed up by the Ambridge Mega Dairy.
The Scottish Government is colluding in this transfer of money and land to farming corporations by considering the idea that 61% of Scotland's farmland, which is rough grazing, should receive only 15% of the CAP budget The other 85% will go to large farms on the best land, more corporate welfare for the already wealthy?
