THE FUTURE OF IRISH FARMING
To the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Marine Michael Creed.
We the People of Ireland suggest that you immediately implement this initiative for the future of Irish farming sent to us by Éire inniú Anois (ÉIA). This sets out a clear goal for farmers North and South of the border that wish to aim for the premium end of the market.
We believe that our farmers are selling themselves short. We believe that instead of trying to compete in the current market, Irish Farmers should aim for the premium market.
We plan on setting up a new high quality standard, which would be a strict stamp of approval for farmers that wish to compete in the premium end of the market.
We would also like to extend this initiative to Northern Ireland. All farmers on our Island could aim for the one high quality goal.
*strict stamp of approval would require the following...
1 – NO antibiotics allowed to be given to animals that wish to qualify at any stage.
2 – NO GM feed
3 – Video cameras must be installed on farm to ensure animals are treated properly
4 – Must pass continuous and random tests to ensure quality control.
We believe that any farmer that receives this strict stamp of approval, can expect to sell produce for 3 – 5 times current market price pushed globally as the best of the best aiming directly at the premium end of the market.
We also propose a grant or tax incentive for installation of video camera system.
We also propose a low VAT or VAT free status for products that qualify, if possible North and South of the border.
We believe that we brand these products as the best of the best in the world and we “will” find food distribution companies that can get our products to the most upper market restaurants worldwide for example.
We propose that Farmers should grow hemp on a percentage of their land, the hemp can firstly be turned into solid fuel and later expanded into all areas of the hemp industry as in for example paper production. You can make the same amount of paper using hemp with only 25% of the size of land that is need to grow trees, plus it only takes 1 year to grow hemp but takes 40years to grow pine for example. This really could be a new national industry.
