"It was an excellent conference, thank you to all the team." Martin Steer – Deer Park Farm (2013)

"Thank you for all the work you did in making the symposium such a success." Peter Cornish – Polybell Organic Farm (2013)

"An excellent event, if only I had been on it when I started out on the Organic journey seven years ago our soils would be in a better state now. Should be a must for any new entrant to Organic Farming before they can claim any subsidy." Charles Hunter Smart, Bradwell Grove Estate (2012)
