Farming Resilience Summit – Wednesday 19 January

07 December 2021 - Chloe Wright

Scrutton Bland is committed to supporting agricultural businesses and we are delighted to invite you to our virtual Farming Resilience Summit.

Agriculture and rural enterprise is having to adapt to significant change with reform of the Basic Payment Scheme and a mission towards net zero.  Protection and enhancement of the natural environment is key to maximise opportunities within the Environmental Land Management Scheme to access new income streams as direct payments reduce.

We have assembled a team of expert speakers to explain and provoke thought from a number of topical sessions to include re-wilding, regenerative farming and the transition to ELMs. There will be opportunity to engage with our speakers through our Q&A session.

This event is free to attend and by participating you will be supporting The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI), a charity which provides support to the farming community across England and Wales by offering guidance, financial support and practical care to farming people of all ages and generations. We will be donating the cost of a bacon roll for each delegate that attends. To find out more about RABI click here.
