The article focuses on the Open Farm Sunday event to be held in Great Britain on June 10, 2007. National Farmers Union (NFU) president Peter Kendall stated that most people failed to notice the efforts of farmers to provide the country with 60% of its food supply. The NFU released a survey which revealed that 23% of the respondents were not aware that bread originates from a British farm. About 40% cited encouraging wildlife as one of the activities performed by farmers to help the environment.
