Designed specifically by farmers for farmers, this is a conference whose themes and issues have been identified as being at the heart of farm businesses across the country.

 

Its pioneering programme welcomes 35 inspirational and motivational speakers from inside and outside of farming, offering practical advice and expert knowledge about the issues we know farmers want to understand more.

 

The opening debate ‘What makes a good farming business great?’ kicks off the first day before the conference splits into three discussion streams - BUILDING, GROWING and PROFITING.

 

Structure your own programme by choosing topics relevant to your business. Whether you are a farmer on the lookout for new and innovative industry ideas, a new entrant trying to get your foot on the ladder, a tenant farmer looking for the next opportunity or a national business wondering what the next step is - there is something for everyone.

 

The evening dinner welcomes guest speaker Tristram Mayhew, founder of outdoor adventure attraction, Go Ape, before the winners of this year’s first British Farming Awards are announced.
