This year’s theme is Mind the Gap: Navigating the New Agricultural Landscape. We will be exploring opportunities for farmers and landowners to access funding from both the private and public sectors, as they adapt to changes in the support regimes.
Please join us for the return of our annual Rural Conference at Lapstone Barn, where you’ll hear from four expert speakers, all operating at the forefront of diversification, natural capital, and environmental land management:
Our 2023 Rural Conference is a valuable event for farmers, landowners and their advisers, and also offers a great opportunity to catch up with friends from the rural sector and network with new professionals too.
The event starts at 1pm, with lunch provided. The conference itself will start promptly at 2pm, with a short break midway through, before finishing at 4.30pm. There will be refreshments afterwards for those able to stay on.
We hope you can join us for an interesting and informative afternoon.
Places for this event are limited. Please email Angela Howard (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in attending.
