The article focuses on a Farmers' Voice survey by Agricultural Development and Advisory Service (ADAS), which showed that two-thirds of farmers in England and Wales believe that they are not respected by their local community and 80% feel unappreciated and poorly understood by local authorities. When questioned, 75% of those responding blamed the media for undermining their standing in the local community. James Standen from ADAS, said the situation has been growing steadily worse.
