When the United Kingdom left the European Union it also left its Common Agricultural Policy that has subsidised food production; transforming landscapes over 45 years. Farming is a devolved issue and each of the four nations are trying to establish what comes next. England's new Environmental Land Management Scheme or ELMs is being designed in Westminster; testing how farmers can instead be paid to restore nature. The atmosphere is heating and the web of life is dying. Land lies beneath these emergencies. This moment is said to be a historic opportunity. Some are optimistic. Others are deeply sceptical. Context and traditions matter. Values clash. The Lake District National Park holds UNESCO World Heritage Site status as ‘an unrivalled example of a northern European upland agro-pastoral system’. This is a system that is now being called on to change. A multiplicity of voices needs to be heard. The transition has begun.
