3 – 5th January 2017
The Oxford Farming Conference is a three-day event that runs early in the new year within the heart of the city’s beautiful university colleges. The conference makes the city its venue, giving delegates privileged access to iconic and historic buildings, such as the Oxford Union, Christ Church and Keble College.
To grow and prosper post-Brexit, UK agriculture needs to question its approach and its thinking. Core to this is adopting a mindset to embrace and deal with change. Farmers have always adopted new approaches to meet society’s needs. Many demonstrate huge resilience in adversity. For 2018’s conference, OFC has a line-up of inspiring speakers from around the world, many who have tackled personal or professional challenges, and often both. The conference will also focus on changes made possible by embracing digital, taking a more proactive approach to farming with the environment at its heart and the approach adopted by leaders of change.
