Cornwall is still largely an agricultural county. Around 75% of all the land in Cornwall is farmed in some way and most parishes include some farmland. In recent years, partly as a result of advances in technology and partly as a consequence of financial constraints, farms have employed many fewer people and farmers have become increasingly isolated. The Church, at parish, county and national level, has a vital ministry to this industry. Support is demonstrated in a variety of ways, usually in conjunction with the Methodist Church.
