The 2017 Oxford Real Farming Conference was held in the Oxford Town Hall on 4th & 5th January. This unique gathering of the UK's sustainable and organic food and farming movements offered a practical mix of on-farm advice, showcasing new techniques for best practice in agroecological farming, whilst discussing the global food system, including the economic and trade policies that affect British farming, plus much more.

ORFC delegates come from across the food and farming sector, with an interest in new agricultural models. Those interested in meeting global food system challenges in innovative, environmentally sustainable ways. Meet the people putting new models of farming into practice, be inspired by those who have been farming for some time, and connect with other farmers facing their own challenges in producing good food for healthy communities. The Oxford Real Farming Conference is a unique opportunity to connect with new, young and emerging farmers; from those taking over the family farm, to those innovating in unusual urban spaces.
This two-day event offers opportunities to connect with other farmers, hear from experts in the field, and participate in discussions and workshops, as well as enjoying a locally-sourced evening reception and even a bit of dancing!
