Farmers and industry experts gathered to discuss and debate the future of agriculture at this year’s Lincolnshire Farming Conference.

Held at the Lincolnshire Showground’s Epic Centre, this year’s event saw experts discuss the impact  of Brexit – as well as addressing the perceived failing of short-term land occupation, farming and human health and conservative agriculture.

NFU international trade adviser Gail Soutar provided an insight into how farmers might navigate Brexit. This included the need for access to labour and ensuring international trade agreements respect domestic production standards.

She said: “We would also like to see a new agricultural policy framework that supports farmers as food producers, improves productivity and resilience and properly rewards the delivery of public goods that British farmers deliver for British citizens.”

The conference also heard from farmer Tom Martin, who explained his ‘Facetime a Farmer’ initiative, which looks to educate youngsters about the importance of agriculture through an interactive Facetime session with a farmer for ten-minutes every fortnight.
