Farming in the 21st Century

Members heard talks on different aspects of farming today.

Helen Reeve, a college lecturer, told us about opportunities to go into farming and about her own cattle rearing enterprise. Anna Purser told us about farming from a student’s point of view and about her flock of sheep. Richard Parry who farms near Holton explained some of the problems facing farmers and how they are getting round them and finally a Coop representative told us about their successful “Taste Local” campaign. The day finished with some of those local products which the Coop had brought along for us to sample.

We are very grateful to all our speakers who gave their time for this event.
