Description

On Thursday 2nd November, the East of England Farming Conference will be returning for its third successful year. Organised by the East of England Agricultural Society, the conference is aimed firmly at progressive people directly involved in farming as well as young people from the food and farming industry. The organising committee aim to bring together informative and inspiring speakers who share ideas that everyone present can take away and adopt in their own businesses and careers.

This year’s theme is “Opportunity” and takes the title of ‘Grow or Go”. We are determined to help our delegates capitalise on opportunities that present themselves whilst giving them some knowledge and reassurance to assist them in creating some of their own.
