In this paper we will explore whether upland agriculture in Britain can be both Fair Trade and locally produced, and second, whether these forms of production are sustainable in this context. We start with a brief overview of the character of upland agriculture and its main issues which influence farmer strategies when developing alternative forms of enterprise. We then move on to consider whether this form of farming can produce goods that can be Fair Trade and local simultaneously. Finally, we critique whether fair and local production can sustain the current upland agricultural system.
