One of the most enjoyable parts of Dan’s work in Suffolk is supporting our local farmers and food and drink producers. Last week, Dan visited the AtlasFram Group in Framlingham during a busy day of visits to local groups and people in Suffolk. Dan spoke about some of the challenges facing our local farmers and the importance of encouraging more people to buy locally produced food and drink.
The AtlasFram Group has grown to become one of the largest farmer cooperatives in the UK, and helps to save farmers time and money by pooling together its member’s collective buying power to purchase essential farming products such as fertiliser, seed and fuel as reduced prices.
