A brief introduction from OFC25 Chairman, Geoff Sansome

"The Oxford Farming Conference (OFC) has always been, and always will be a highlight in the farming industry calendar bringing together people from all corners of the agricultural, rural and food sectors, generating ideas and positive solutions for the future. 

It is just over 30 years since I first attended OFC, and it has been one of the highlights of my working year ever since. I have watched it evolve, as our farming industry has evolved during those times. I have listened intently to the political updates from numerous Ministers and Secretaries of State and revelled in the challenge and debate around those updates. I still marvel at the opportunity the conference presents to network with the leaders, shakers and movers in UK farming and how easy it is to have those conversations in the convivial and hallowed setting of Oxford.

UK farming now faces a complex array of changes. Political, financial, technical, climate and seasonal to name but a few. Our forbearers will have faced worse but many farmers, particularly given the seasonal challenges of this year, are finding themselves challenged more than they have been before.

But change creates opportunity, and opportunity nourishes innovators. Innovators lead and adopt new technologies and influence others to see new opportunities. And that is the basis for the theme I have chosen for OFC 2025, “Facing change, finding opportunity”. 

Within this theme I wish to provide a conference that looks at how current and future farming policies provide new opportunities for farmers; how we can adapt, with the help of science and new practices, to the changing natural world we farm in; and how change and adversity can produce inspiring innovators and leaders who can transform people, farming and food production. 

As ever, we will be in the wonderful and historical surroundings of Oxford University, with a nod to the wonderful traditions and history that stands for. But, building on the superb work of past OFC Chairs, we will fully embrace and celebrate the diverse world UK farming is becoming and how it needs to develop more, as befits a leading 21st century industry."




OFC25 will take place from 8th to 10th January 2025, in Oxford and Online.
