Delivering savings, examining trade-offs and monitoring impacts

Date: 13 November 2018

Time: 09:30 - 14:30 (including light lunch)
Location: Blackbird Farming Ltd, Hempstead Farm, Hempstead Lane, Tonge, Sittingbourne, Kent, ME9 9BJ

The event is free to attend, but please register so we can plan catering accordingly.

In this unpredictable and incentive-driven climate, where can sustainable farming strategies reduce risk, allow greater business resilience and offer consistency of yield?

What role does, can and should natural capital play in this, today and in the future?

We will examine the current strategies implemented by Blackbird Farming Ltd - a LEAF Demonstration Farm and AHDB Monitor Farm.

Blackbird Farming is an arable, fruit and sheep business just outside Sittingbourne. It is an integrated business using cutting edge technology and innovation to keep it on the front foot in an increasingly volatile market.

We will examine the thinking behind their management approach and then, through experts and group discussions, look at additional ways to enhance these methods in order to promote their overall business efficiency.
