Back British Farming tour comes to Eden
Farmers are taking their Back British Farming message on the road to Cornwall in a bid to build on the support already being shown from politicians, retailers and the public.
The National Farmers' Union (NFU) advertising van is touring the country, having started from the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester on Monday.
The trip will take in landmarks such as the Angel of the North at Gateshead, and it is scheduled to arrive in the Westcountry at the Eden Project, at St Austell, today.
On its nine-day travels it will have visited restaurants and supermarkets in the areas of Bradford, Staffordshire, Leicester, Peterborough, Cardiff, Maidstone and ending in London.

Its final destination will be Angelus, a French restaurant in London, where owner Thierry Tomasin, who is passionate about sourcing British produce, will become the first restaurateur to sign the NFU's Back British Farming Charter.
The charter was launched to highlight a decline in the country's self-sufficiency and is aimed at reversing the trend and increasing the proportion of food consumed which is produced here.
More than 1,400 people have already signed.
