Organic Awareness Days at Yeo Valley

15 May 2013 09:30 - 15 May 2013 15:30

Yeo Valley, Wills Barn Education Centre, Rhodyate, Blagdon

Our one-day organic induction on Yeo Valley’s organic farm is designed to provide an engaging, informative and enjoyable introduction to organic. The event is relevant and helpful to anyone involved in organic - from buyers, developers, marketers, and technical staff, to members of the communications and press teams.

Experts from the Soil Association and Yeo Valley will share up-to-date knowledge on what sets organic products apart, while an afternoon farm tour will provide delegates with a valuable insight into organic farming in practice.

The day begins at Holt Farms, Wills Barn - the Soil Association will give an introduction to the organisation; briefly covering its history, objectives and current activities. Delegates will also receive a market update, along with current news, trends and key developments.

A brief introduction to Yeo Valley will be given followed by their local and organic lunch, (Yeo Valley are also holder of the gold Food for Life Catering Mark). Delegates will also receive a comprehensive tour of the 500 hectare Soil Association-certified Holt Farm to illustrate organic methods and give valuable insight into a practical, commercial organic farm at work.

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.
