On 14 October, young farmers from across the UK gathered at Cumbria’s Rheged Centre to attend Fertile Minds 2016.

The conference assembled industry experts and business professionals from across agriculture, with the aim of sharing their experiences and giving aspiring young farmers guidance to succeed in the sector.

Delegates attended keynote speeches, an interactive Q&A session and a choice of six afternoon workshops.
