Soil Association Farm Walk Programme 2014
Following the success of our extensive farm walk programme in 2013, we are delighted to offer a fantastic variety of farm walks across the country again in 2014.
Through this series of walks, we aim to encourage producers to take a few hours out of their busy schedules and meet up with other farmers and growers. These walks are a great opportunity to make local connections and share knowledge, innovation and experience within a relaxed environment.
We would like to thank all of our host farms for taking part.
These events are kindly supported by the Duchy Originals Future Farming Programme.
We welcome all farmers and growers, organic or non-organic. These events are free to attend although prior booking is essential.
