The free annual event, which is being held at the BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh on Tuesday 26 February, will feature presentations from a range of speakers, including Rebecca McEwen, who gave up a career in film and TV to run Arnprior Pumpkins on her husband’s family farm.
The Rural Innovation Support Service (RISS) has teamed up with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and the National Farmers’ Union Scotland to invite farmers to three free lunchtime events showcasing the help available for them to make the most out of their upland farm business.
They will also be able to discuss their business ideas and challenges with industry representatives and other farmers.
The next round of the Agri-Environment Climate Scheme (AECS) has opened for applications today (17 January).
AECS is part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme. It supports environmentally-friendly land management practices that aim to safeguard and improve Scotland's natural heritage and help businesses adapt to climate change.
