Organic advice team

A NEW team of 11 consultants is offering independent organic advice from Dorset to Wales and across to North Yorkshire.

Abacus Organic Associates shares skills and expertise through a network of organic contacts, explains Rutland-based Stephen Briggs, formerly of Elm Farm Research Station.

A programme of continual professional development, the first of its kind in the sector, will ensure farmers receive advice relevant to individual needs, he says. &#42
