The market for organic cereals is growing faster than UK producers can supply. In 2015, we imported 80% of our organic animal feedstuffs and year on year this reliance is increasing. With the UK organic market now worth more than ever at £2.2 billion, more farmers are considering organic conversion as a viable option to supply this increasing demand.

Highlighting the principles and practicalities of organic arable production, current market opportunities as well as the application process - join us to find out if farming organically could work for you.
