Mark Stay,3 Somerton Road,  North Aston, Oxon, OX25 6HP

Farm Background: We rent land from North Aston Farms (850 acres of organic grassland for beef and sheep plus a separate micro dairy enterprise). We grow most vegetables and some culinary herbs. Marketing is diverse, but mainly through a flexible box scheme. We have 1300m2 of polytunnel and 120m2 glasshouse where we raise all our own transplants. We operate a no dig system in our main multispan tunnel. For more information, please visit www.northastonorganics.co.uk

Attendance is free but advanced booking is absolutely essential. We will send out directions prior to the walk.

Working to improve organic production systems

Liz Bowles: Improving organic systems and markets is always at the forefront of our minds at the Soil Association. As part of our ongoing work we have prioritised a number of areas for special attention over the coming months and years which I wanted to update you on. However we are keenly aware that we may not always know about the challenges that you face from day to day so we really do welcome your thoughts on where you believe we should be placing emphasis.
