Organic Arable Annual Members' Meeting 2023
We're hosting our annual meeting for our farmers on 29th November 2023. We will be having technical and marketing sessions and plenty of opportunity for networking and chatting with other organic cereal farmers.
With the introduction of SFI bringing significant changes to Environmental Stewardship exciting opportunities for organic producers exist and we will be learning how some farmers are responding to these opportunities.
We also here of increasing demand in the poultry sector indicating some recovery on our market (if not immediate) we have invited Stonegate Farmers to talk about the opportunities they can offer for to generate income form the fertility building phase of your rotation and the opportunities for your feed grains.
We will be rounding up our variety trials results from the 2023 harvest providing insights into the most appropriate varieties to use. We will also be explaining the ongoing trials for the current season.
