National Organic Conference – Food, Farming, Nature, Climate & People

Event Date : July 1, 2024 - July 2, 2024

Event Location : Kingsclere Estate in Hampshire

OF&G has been running an annual on-farm food and farming event since 2008 with a conference that always takes place on an organic farm each July.

The event has grown in attendee numbers and in profile as each year they open the doors to partners who work with them to build a great food and farming conference.

The aim of the event is always multifunctional; to encourage new entrants, to help inform and celebrate existing organic practitioners, and to promote key market and policy messages.

And core to the whole event is giving people the opportunity to come together, share food, swap notes, and to nosey around somebody else’s place.

This year the National Organic Conference 1-2 July 2024
will be held on Tim May’s Kingsclere Estate in Hampshire.

On the 1st July OF&G with partners, Organic Arable, the Organic Growers Alliance, and the UK Grain Lab will be hosting fringe events that afternoon, gathering together for a meal in the evening.

On the 2nd July they will hold the usual NOC; talks in the morning, chaired by journalist and organic farmer Sarah Dickens, followed by a two-course lunch prepared by Aimee Collins of the prestigious and highly decorated restaurant Five Little Pigs, and as ever the NOC lunch will be followed by the NOC farm walk.

ORC will have a stall with a range of ORC and Agricology resources available. On the farm walk; Charlotte and Isi will be covering our work on variety testing for organic bean production and the development of a seed system that supports the use of genetically diverse plant populations (LiveSeeding project). Lindsay Whistance will be focusing on the Re-livestock tree fodder trial.
