One of the largest farming events in the Midlands, The Arable Event, is returning to Woodlands Farm, part of Bradfords Estates outside Weston-under-Lizard on June 7, 2023.
Organised by Wynnstay and GrainLink, last year’s event attracted more than 1,500 farmers and industry experts and has become known as a place to share knowledge and expertise, view extensive trial plantings and get hands-on experience of the latest farm machinery.
Event organiser, Kelly Dolphin, said: “The Arable Event really is the place to be for anyone who grows crops or is involved in the industry. We have extensive cereal trial plots, expert speakers, the chance to see the latest machinery and the opportunity to collect BASIS and NroSO points. Every guest gets a free goody bag, refreshments and programme, so you won’t need to break the bank to attend.
“We’re very grateful to Bradford Estates for their commitment to helping us host the Arable Event, and we look forward to seeing as many people there as possible.”
As well as the trial plot tours and machinery demonstrations, the event will include a free moisture meter clinic run by Sinar Technology, an open air speakers’ tent and trade stands from a range of agricultural businesses.
Trial plots, grown by Syngenta and Wynnstay on Bradford Estates, will include winter and spring cereals and cover crops.
Woodlands Farm is part of Bradford Estates and is operated by Bradford Farming. Their ambition is to establish the largest regenerative farm in the West Midlands, with a vision to create a market leading agribusiness that focusses on sustainable farming systems. The aim is to become a centre of farming excellence, to help advance the understanding of sustainable farming systems and practices.
