28 November 2013 10:00 - 29 November 2013 17:00

Olympia, Central London

The biggest event that has ever been held in the UK to inspire and assist those diversifying in or out of agriculture. The Farm Business Innovation Show is the show designed for all farmers, smallholders, land owners, estates and everybody with an interest in rural business, who are looking for new ways to use their land to bring in more money. This is not an agricultural show with farm machinery, plant and livestock, but a farming business show with new ideas, advice, suppliers, expert speakers and resources to make your business more profitable.

Speakers include Alistair Sawday (Special places to stay, Canopy & Stars), Doug Richard (Dragons Den) and Ian Burrows (Farmer’s Weekly Diversification Farmer of the year)
