Oxford Real Farming Conference Session
There is no better way to start your farming year than at the Oxford Real Farming Conference.

There is no better way to start your farming year than at the Oxford Real Farming Conference. The event, held in the first week of this month, consisted of two inspiring and energising days of socialising and hearing from all sorts of speakers involved in the UK’s new agricultural renaissance.

The Oxford Real Farming Conference coincided with the famous Oxford Farming Conference and aimed to counterbalance the latter’s free market ethos and ‘sustainable intensification’ agenda.
