Claire said: "We want to empower young, British farmers and give them a voice and the confidence to farm in a regenerative way. The climate emergency is at the top of most people's agendas and regenerative farming can really make a difference.

"We want to get the public and the policymakers on side and to get farming the long-term investment that it needs.”
