Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)

Farm to fork - CAPtured, for over 50 years

Agri Aware is currently delivering an innovative CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) communication campaign entitled ‘Farm to fork - CAPtured, for over 50 years’. The aim of the campaign is to communicate the many benefits of the CAP and the challenges ahead to the general public and farmers, across Ireland-North and South.

A key element of the campaign is Agri Aware’s ‘Meet the Farmer in the City’ at Family Farm, developed by Agri Aware and Dublin Zoo, which has over 1 million annual visitors. Agri Aware’s has selected a number of farmers who are the resident farmers in Family Farm, during weekends this Summer. These farmers represent a number of different sectors within the farming community. The will engage visitors to Family Farm about farming, the importance of the agri-food industry and the CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) in Ireland during tours of Family Farm.

Agri Aware's resident young farmers are also on hand each day during the summer months with a range of fun farm themed activities in Family Farm, Dublin Zoo.
