On behalf of 1,100 farming businesses in Gloucestershire, the NFU are delighted to host this year’s county farm walk on the morning of Friday 5th July. The event will showcase farmer's roles in producing great British food, caring for the environment and creating stunning landscapes that so many of us enjoy while out and about in the countryside.
The focus for this year's event will be climate change. Courtesy of David Wilson, farm manager at Duchy Home Farm, Tetbury, there will be a number of presentations and discussion on how agriculture could become a net-zero emitter by 2040, followed by a farm walk and then lunch. The focus of the event this year will be the role of Gloucestershire farmers in tackling climate change as well as discussing some of the wider challenges facing the farming sector at the moment.
A key question that will be asked is can Gloucestershire farmers become net zero emitters of greenhouse gases by 2040. As ever, the morning will include a farm walk so please come dressed for the weather.
Please note, this event is NOT just for the farming community and attendance from all interested would be welcomed.
Date: Friday 5th July
Time: 10am - 2pm
