They included Luke Abblitt, who is a specialist cereal grower, from Ramsey St Marys and beef producer Judith Jacobs from Newborough, near Peterborough.

A leading beet grower, Robert Law, who is vice chairman of the Natinal Farmers' Union's sugar board and farms on the Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire border near Royston, joined forces with farmers across the country for the video, produced by the NFU.

It is being released to recognise the phenomenal support farming has received from the public this year. Research shows more people than ever before want to buy more traceable food while a One Poll survey revealed that 78pc shoppers believe supermarkets should stock more British food.

In the video, Luke thanks the public for buying his wheat, Judith for buying her beef and Robert for buying his sugar.

NFU Vice President Adam Quinney said: 'This video is just a small way of saying thank you to the people of Britain for backing British farming.

'Our farmers and growers will continue to work hard over Christmas and into the New Year to put more British food on more British plates and will continue to show how farming delivers for Britain.'
