6-7Jan2014: Real Farming Conference

6-7Jan2014: Real Farming Conference

New Generation, New Ideas

Britain requires considerably more farmers to achieve the vision of Real Farming. Farms would ideally be smaller and there would be a need for highly trained people to work on them. The current generation of farmers are approaching retirement and there are not enough new farmers to take their places.

At the same time, large numbers of young people see the appeal of going back to the land. This strand of the ORFC looks at the obstacles to new entrants achieving this aim and showcases some of the new solutions people have come up with to overcome them.

There are five priority areas for action to create the next generation of farmers for Europe. We will bring together representatives from some of the leading initiatives in each area for panel discussions and a look at the next steps. The final plenary session will bring together the conclusions from each area to create a manifesto for change. The five priority areas are:

1. Skills and training
2. Land access
3. Access to markets
4. Access to finance
5. Policy and politics

This year the conference spreads its net wider than previously by inviting some key projects from the rest of Europe to come and share their successes and challenges in these areas, with the aim of launching a European and ultimately worldwide directory of initiatives making a real difference supporting young farmers. There will be specific sessions discussing initiatives in the United States of America and Europe as well as a session devoted to what it’s like to set up a sustainable agriculture business from scratch, from the horse’s mouth.
