The Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) (Welsh: Undeb Amaethwyr Cymru (UAC)), a member organisation, was formed in 1955 to protect and advance the interests of those who derive an income from Welsh agriculture.

Since its establishment in 1955, the FUW has been given the official right by the UK Government to represent and speak on behalf of Welsh farmers. The Union has done so at the highest level - at the National Assembly, Whitehall and the European Union.

Its headquarters is located at Aberystwyth and the union has a network of county and local offices throughout Wales.
