Norfolk Farming Conference

Wednesday 30 November 2022: All Day
the Norfolk Farming Conference is back

After pausing for a year because of Covid, the Norfolk Farming Conference is back, being held on November 30, 2022 at the Norfolk Showground.

Firms including Brown&Co, Birketts, Lovewell Blake, NatWest, Norfolk County Council, the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association and the AF Group are continuing to organise the event which returns after a year’s break due of Covid.

Charles Whitaker, Managing Partner of Brown&Co said: “We feel it’s important at a time of such major change for the farming industry that the conference addresses the issues that are challenging farming and land use. This is from the standpoint of government policy change, pressure to change land use practices to combat climate change, the impact on trade/markets and understanding the impact of the goal of de-carbonisation of the sector across the environment and resource use.”

The event will once again welcome Guy Smith as the chairman for the conference. An array of eminent national and regional speakers will address current timely topics.

These include:

Trade – challenges and opportunities;Tom Bradshaw, farmer and NFU Vice-President

Farming Carbon, ELMs and the Environment;Paul Dolman, Professor of Conservation Ecology, School of Environmental Sciences, UEA and David Lyles, an award-winning farm conservationist, Muckleton Farm, Burnham Market.

Water – flood mitigation and water resource use; Robin Price, CEO Water Resources East

Local farming case studies;

Nick Padwick, rewilding the Ken Hill Estate

John Pawsey, organic farming and monetising natural capital benefits

Poul Hoveson, building soil health and organic matter

Q&A sessions will be held throughout the day and a summary round-up will close the conference. There will also be opportunities for networking with the farming community and professional advisors throughout the day.

A more detailed version of the programme will be shared in due course.
