The Oxford Farming Conference

Logo

The 2022 Oxford Farming Conference, Routes to Resilience, will be co-chaired by Barbara Bray MBE and Sarah Mukherjee MBE and will be held from 5 to 7 January 2022. The event will embrace a hybrid model with the opportunity for you to attend the live conference in Oxford, enjoying the stunning venues and social activities, or from the comfort of your home via our digital package.

Programme

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 are limited in space so please make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.

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 annoucements are made impacting future legislation. It is also the date of our renowned debate, which this year will discuss the motion "This house believes food production in the UK should not be subsidised."

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".
