The overriding theme of ‘Small Island: BIG IDEAS’ will be upheld in every aspect of the 2017 International Conference with a series of visits and events to showcase the very ‘Best of British’ in farming, food and our diversified rural landscape.
Running from the 3rd to 15th June 2017, the programme includes seven themed days of unique visits to pioneering farms, diversified rural enterprises and thriving agri-food businesses.
These will be followed by a further three days of focused sector Technical Field Tours intended to whet the appetite of enthusiasts who are keen to learn more from our industry leaders in the fields of arable, dairy, beef and sheep, poultry and sustainable farming.
As part of the whole Triennial experience, a high profile Conference Day is also scheduled for Thursday, 8th June, at the East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham University, to explore ‘Farming Fit For Food’.
