Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Supporting Dairy Farmers – Food Enterprise Zone

In February 2015 the South Downs National Park was named as one of eleven new Food Enterprise Zones (FEZ) created to make it easier for food and farming businesses to expand and diversify.

The South Downs FEZ covers the area of the National Park that falls within the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (parts of Brighton & Hove, Lewes and West Sussex). It specifically aims to make it simpler for dairy farmers to reuse farm buildings for food processing or to set up farm shops to sell their produce locally. At a time when the price that dairy farmers receive for their produce has fallen dramatically this could make a big difference to the National Park’s local economy.

Consultants  are now working with three dairy farms to assist them with developments.
