This is a special year for LEAF and a significant year for farming. LEAF celebrates its 30th anniversary at a time when British farming enters a new era. The effects of Brexit with new trade deals, changes to support payments coupled with the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing effects of the climate crisis are causing a seismic shift in farming. This feels like 'farming’s time’ - but what long term strategies do we need to be thinking about now to ensure we leave strong, resilient and profitable businesses for generations following behind us.

Whilst navigating this post-Brexit world, deciphering the implications of ELMs and where excellence is now measured in milliseconds, it is hard to think past the next three weeks, let alone 3 years or even 30.

But if this pace of change continues, farmers will require a much longer term lense. These on-farm, interactive events will bring together Resilient & Ready farmers, representatives from LEAF and Corteva Agriscience and industry professionals to examine:

We will also be joined at each event by a long standing LEAF Demonstration Farmer who will share their own unique insights and perspectives on what a truly sustainable business looks like, the optimal business strategies to ensure success in the long term and how to plan for both the expected and unexpected.

These events are designed to help farmers take a step back from the urgent business, political and climate issues of the moment, reflect on what you want to achieve in the long term and identify the best tools, techniques and strategies to future proof your business.
