The Oxford Real Farming Conference 2015

Nov 20, 2014

The Oxford Real Farming Conference is a must for anyone concerned with the future of farming and food sovereignty. This is a two day event 6th & 7th January 2015 – so it is high time to book your tickets!!

Here’s a few lines from the ORFC website about the event:

“Sessions over the years have ranged from the intricacies of soil microbiology to new kinds of marketing, micro-dairies, mob grazing and agroforestry; from the joys and tribulations of crofting, to the kind of economic structure we need to support the kind of farming and marketing that we need, to the underlying morality of farming – why some ways of doing things are better than others; and many more.”
