Farming conference for Jersey

19 November 2014

​A leading opinion-former on farming in the UK is to speak at Jersey’s 2014 farming conference.

It’s the fourth year that the Economic Development Department and the Department of the Environment have hosted the event. In previous years it has attracted more than 100 delegates from Jersey’s rural community.

The event, on Friday 28 November, will cover international, national and local issues affecting Jersey’s agricultural industry.

Loves Royals

The lead speaker is farmer, writer, broadcaster, councillor, publisher and conservationist Robin Page. He writes regularly for the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail, is a member of the National Trust’s council, and loves Jersey Royals.

Topics include the challenges facing the Jersey Royal potato, plant health, brand protection, agricultural lending, dairy farming in America and the new Rural Economy Strategy.

Open and informative

Rural Economy Manager, Department of the Environment, John Jackson said "The Jersey Farming Conference is becoming a fixture in the rural calendar where local, national and international issues concerning agriculture and the environment are addressed in an open and informative manner.

“The Department looks forward to welcoming anyone interested in the rural sector to the event and to the following discussions that could inform and influence the industry’s future.”

The event takes place at La Mare Wine Estate. Registration begins at 9.30am and the conference starts at 10am. To reserve a place contact the Department of the Environment by 21 November.
