In modern day agriculture, farmers tend to be commodity producers. These farms have no say on the value of their produce and are the last in the food chain to see any profit. During this session you will hear from real farmers in the UK that have broken away from mainstream farming and are producing real food for real people. This session will inspire with innovative methods of food production and will highlight the challenges of getting a new enterprise off the ground.
