Shropshire Petals supports NFU's #BackBritishFarming movement.
Shropshire Petals are absolutely delighted to showcase our Shropshire grown wheat in the NFU's Back British Farming movement.
We have been contributing to this movement for the last few years now, and would love to get you all involved too!
Today, we promote the importance of local produce and British Farming. From boosting the National Economy - to - lowering our own personal carbon footprint, let us all advise and educate the community to encourage a healthier and more eco-friendly Nation.
On Wednesday 9th September the NFU will be encouraging all MPs to show their support for British farming by wearing a Shropshire Petals wheat buttonhole, These dried flower buttonholes are lovingly handmade, using wheat grown on our Shropshire farm and have been wrapped with British wool. Politicians present at the Palace of Westminster will also be posting on social media using the hashtag #BackBritishFarming.
