Rural seminar

MEMBERS of the farming community are invited to a major new agricultural event taking place at Askham Bryan College on 10 November.

The Farming & Rural Issues seminar, organised by JWPCreers LLP Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, aims to give a boost to farmers and agribusinesses in Yorkshire.

The event is free and open to anyone with an interest in farming and food production.

The Farming & Rural Issues seminar will feature presentations by Greg Ricketts and James Severn, Directors from Andersons Farm Business Consultants and Jean Jesty, Head of Tax and Partner at JWPCreers LLP.

It will look at the challenges facing farmers from farm diversification and renewable energy to expectations for farming in 2012.

Stephen Headley, who heads the agricultural practice of the firm, said: “We are sure this is going to generate a great deal of interest from the industry and will be an opportunity to bring together those who are looking at ways of taking their farming enterprises forward and to look at the options for change.

“We hope the farming community will see this as a valuable opportunity to get together, enjoy the evening, and network with experts from their field.”
