Farming events from Farmers Weekly

We are planning on running the previously postponed Diversification event and Britain’s Fittest Farmer heats and final in the coming months along with other on farm events if it is safe to do so.

The relaxation of the advice issued by the Government and Public Health England allows us to consider how we can run events while adhering to the guidelines to ensure both staff and attendees are safe. We will take the maximum precautions and comply to all the required measures including a full risk assessment that will be made available upon request at each event.

As soon as we are 100% confident that we can run our on farm events safely we will announce the dates and venues for them. In the meantime we have a number of virtual events, including webinars, that we have organised for you to keep up to date with what is happening in agriculture, so please do try them out.
