Farmers and Prisons

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.
  • Rosie Boycott

An interesting article by Rosie Boycott, which appeared originally in The Guardian and is reprinted in the Guild of Food Writer's Savour magazine, contains this extraordinary statistic regarding food production in the U.K.:

“On average 37 farmers are leaving the land every day in Britain; there are now more people in jail than farmers”.
Shiver me timbers...
