Cambridgeshire farmer Tim Breitmeyer has been appointed president of the Country Land and Business Association – representing 30,000 landowners, farmers and rural businesses.

Setting out how he intends to drive Brexit forward for the rural economy, Mr Breitmeyer said: “We are in an era-defining period of change. Exiting the European Union will impact on rural areas more than any other part of the economy.

“It is an opportunity to do better for farming, for our environment and wider land use and for investment in rural communities. I look forward to leading the association as we play our role in shaping policy at this crucial time.”

Mr Breitmeyer farms 640ha of wheat, spring barley, oil seed rape and sugarbeet near Bartlow, as well as contract-farming a further 1280ha. The business also runs a sugarbeet harvesting and delivery operation, rents out 5,500 square foot of office space and has a private shoot.

He said: “I am particularly keen to ensure that we are out talking to farmers, landowners and rural business owners throughout England and Wales. We are their voice and it is vital they are heard so an effective and practical policy is delivered.”

Serving for 18 years in the Grenadier Guards until he retired in 1996, Mr Breitmeyer remains a member of Her Majesty’s Honourable Corps of Gentlemen at Arms, providing a ceremonial guard for the Queen on state occasions.

Mark Bridgeman from Northumberland has been appointed CLA deputy president, while Mark Tufnell from Gloucestershire becomes CLA vice-president.
