REAL-ly looking forward this event, one of the most important food and farming events of the year.
The Oxford Real Farming Conference (ORFC) is an unique gathering of the UK’s sustainable food and farming movements – practical info plus discussions on creating REAL change in the food system.
We urgently need REAL farming – farms which put back more than they take out, and care for the health of soil, wildlife, animals, and people. Farms that marry the best practices of both traditional and modern farming. In other words, the opposite of factory farming.
In other words, farms such as our beautiful biodynamic organic farms.
This year, there will be a room dedicated to all things Brexit, and the keynote speaker is the Rt Hon Michael Gove MP and Secretary of State for the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra).
We are hosting a participatory workshop on Land Whispering with Dan Powell of LandBase, during lunchtime just after Gove’s keynote speech.
