Founded in 1908, the National Farmers Union (NFU) has become the voice of British farming and has become one of Britain's most respected and effective trade associations. The NFU provides professional services and representation to its grower and farmer members, and promotes British farming. With 55,000 members across Wales and England, and approximately 70% of full time farmers being members of the NFU, the association has become the voice and professional representation of British farming, to ensure that it is continuously being improved and maintained. The NFU has over 300 local offices which are financially supported by NFU Mutual, and NFU County Advisors in several areas to promote and maintain relationships with members on a more personal, local level. The organisation also has headquarters in Warwickshire, and large offices in Brussels, Westminster, and Wales. Sectors supported by the NFU include arable, dairy, hill farming, horticulture, potatoes, organic, livestock, pigs, poultry, and sugar.
