Farmer led knowledge exchange
November saw myself and the farm launched as a new Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA) Monitor farm. This is new initiative set up and facilitated by the HGCA to promote and widen their involvement in British farming. They want to create and develop a new program to get farmers together to discuss current farming practice and issues, they wanted it to be farmer led on working farms to benefit all those who attend. It is a three year position and I was keen to get involved as the HGCA are one of the leading R & D funders in the industry and they have a wealth of people that we can bring to Suffolk to discuss our chosen topics on the the farm.
As part of my role as being the host farmer we will be running another farming blog through the HGCA site. The link below will take you to all our event write ups, my farming thoughts and related topics.
