The Oxford Farming Conference
The 2022 Oxford Farming Conference, Routes to Resilience, will be co-chaired by Barbara Bray MBE and Sarah Mukherjee MBE and following an announcement on Wednesday 22nd December 2022, will now be held online only.
Joint Co-Chairs, Barbara Bray and Sarah Mukherjee said:
“Like many other organisations, we have been monitoring announcements and developments across the UK and internationally on the Omicron variant. Delegate safety has always been our primary concern.
“Whilst we are confident that the measures we had put in place to safeguard delegates were robust, the groundswell of concern nationally and internationally, combined with the lack of clarity about regulations likely in the weeks ahead, made this decision inevitable.
“The OFC is in good financial health, but we must face the fact that this decision will create a very large deficit for us, as a small charity that dates back to the 1930s. However, the decision is the right one to make.”
Tickets are just £45 + VAT, offering access to a full live stream, all on-demand content and the OFC app, which will be used for submitting questions to the speakers, participating in polls and networking.Buy your ticket to join us online here.
Starting on Wednesday 5th January, a range of fringes will be hosted by organisations looking at future solutions and opportunities within agriculture. Each of these sessions will be hosted on Zoom, with one running every hour, allowing you even more opportunity to join multiple fringes throughout the day.
Thursday 6th January will combine trade, policy, science, research and farmer-led solutions, and is often a key moment in the agricultural diary as new announcements are made impacting future legislation. It is also the date of our renowned debate, which this year will discuss the motion "This house believes the demise of the family farm has been greatly exaggerated."
Friday 7th January will look at the relevance of the concept of ‘family’ in agriculture around the world, the next steps for the National Food Strategy and launch the return of the OFC report focusing on "Natural Capital - the battle for control".
The decision to move Oxford fully ONLINE was made on Wednesday 22nd December, so please keep checking back as we update the programme with more information and details about the speakers, as there may be some small changes to the start or finish times of sessions.View Programme
