Cotswolds Farming Forum - Farming & the Cotswolds Landscape Post Brexit

10 April 2017
Cotswolds Farming Forum - Farming & the Cotswolds Landscape Post Brexit

This year’s Cotswolds Farming Forum will look at farming and the Cotswolds landscape after Brexit with presentations from three different perspectives; the farmer, the food retailer and the Cotswolds Conservation Board.

The Cotswolds Conservation Board will host this year’s annual Farming Forum at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester on Thursday 27 April from 6:30pm.

Farming is vital for the Cotswolds and has for many years been strongly influenced by European grant schemes and regulation. The speakers will look at the threats and opportunities from Brexit and what farming in the Cotswolds needs post Brexit to produce food, conserve the landscape and biodiversity.

Speakers include: Mark Tufnell, Calmsden Farms, Martin Lane, Director of the Cotswolds Conservation Board and Barry Hancox, local food and hospitality entrepreneur and consultant.

Director of the Cotswolds Conservation Board, Martin Lane said “We hope this event will give farmers the opportunity to consider both the threats and opportunities that Brexit will bring to the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, hearing from the farmer and the retailer”.

Doors open at 6.30pm with light refreshments, welcome and introduction by Lord Bathurst at 7pm.
