Dr Dan started off a busy day in the constituency with a visit to see a farm rearing ducks for the Gressingham Duck company. Dr Dan was intrigued to learn of the stringent processes in place and also took time to talk with those attending to discuss any potential implications on food production, post-Brexit.
Dr Dan then went on to meet with a group of farmers and representatives from the NFU who were keen to hear Dr Dan's views on the impact of Brexit on agriculture here in Central Suffolk.
