Managing your Agricultural Business in a Changing Environment

Join us for our next 'Future Proof Farming Event - Managing your Agricultural Business in a Changing Environment’ at Hexham & Northern Marts on 23 January 2020.

We will be joining forces with Hay & Kilner Law Firm and Barclays Bank on Thursday 23rd January for our next ‘Future Proof Farming: Managing your Agricultural Business in a Changing Environment’ with guest speakers Robert Craig of Peepy Farm Northumberland and Director of First Milk, and Adam Day, Managing Director of The Farmer Network. Together, with a panel of agricultural financial and legal experts, they will explore the opportunities and challenges faced by farmers in a swiftly changing environment and provide insight, opinion and advice on current topical issues including; economic predictions for the rural economy, capital taxes, diversification and succession to help secure agri-businesses for future generations.

Commenting on the event, Andrew Robinson, Head of Agriculture said,

“This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from a wide range of speakers and specialists from the agricultural world as they share their first-hand knowledge and experience. We recognise it’s not easy operating a farming business during these uncertain economic times but we’re hoping to dig deep into some of the most pressing issues and look at what action fellow farmers can take to ensure their agricultural businesses succeed and prosper for many years to come.”

The free event will begin at 5.30pm with a welcome drink and pie and pea supper.
