The Rt Hon Michael Gove MP, Secretary of State for Defra, visited Exmoor recently to meet with farmers backing a transformative proposal for post-Brexit farming on Exmoor.  Known as ‘Exmoor’s Ambition’, the proposal is a progressive new concept for sustaining and enhancing Exmoor’s farmed landscape and communities after Brexit.

During the visit, the Secretary of State toured two farms championing the proposal, where he met representatives from the Exmoor Hill Farming Network, Exmoor National Park Authority and The Exmoor Society who have been instrumental in developing the new concept.
