FARMERS who have concerns about the impact of Brexit and other key issues are invited to a conference in Malvern.

The annual Three Counties Farming Conference, taking place on Thursday, November 14, will focus on how farming can stand up in the face of upheaval and create solutions for the future.

Chaired by BBC Countryfile presenter Adam Henson, this year’s evening debate will include speakers who provide expertise and experience in challenging farming circumstances.

John Wilesmith, head of operations at the Three Counties Farming Conference said: “This year we have speakers with first-hand experience of the challenges and how they have made mistakes and found the solutions.

"Their stories should provide inspiration and hope that a business can be turned around.

“The challenges that face farming are there for all to see, and to be able to hear from and debate these issues and solutions is a vital practice for those within farming.”

On the panel is organic dairy farmer Bryce Cunningham from Mossgiel Farm, Ayrshire, the same land that Scotland’s National Bard, Robert Burns, once farmed.

Certified Organic since 2018, Mossgiel Farm is also the UK’s first single-use plastic-free dairy.

Farming diversification will be the message from James Manning of Shack Events. Having grown up within a dairy family, James developed his interest in business through his father’s passion for cows and business.

Other notable speakers include farmer Ali Capper who produces apples and hops in partnership with her husband Richard on their farm in Worcestershire and is the NFU’s Horticulture and Potatoes Board Chair.

She has a specific interest in seasonal labour, business at home, breaking into new markets, growing new varieties and export.

George Dunn, chief executive of the Tenant Farmers Association will also be discussing the challenges facing tenant farmers and how they can find themselves a solution for the future.

Tickets cost £20 in advance and £22 on the day, or for students, £10 in advance or £11 on the day.

This includes admission to both the afternoon and evening conferences and the networking buffet, taking place at 5pm before the evening conference.
