We are very pleased to announce that John and Alice Pawsey and family will be welcoming guests to their mixed organic arable and sheep farm at Shimpling in Suffolk on 6 July 2021.

This annual on-farm conference began in 2008 and is a popular event with delegates and speakers coming from all over the UK and beyond.

We are planning to hold the event as an in-person on-farm conference with a cap of one hundred guests which will help us be able to provide sufficient capacity to ensure everybody’s safety.

Event convenor will again be the respected broadcaster Charlotte Smith.

Proceedings will all be recorded on video.

We will be posting conference material online in the days and weeks following the event with presentations and discussions and as always the farm walk.

OF&G's National Organic Combinable Crops 2021 is held in association with:

Catering will be supplied by Henrietta Inman and the team from the bakery at Wakelyns Organic Agroforestry farm.

If you would like to reserve a delegate place or a trade stand please send an email to admin@ofgorganic.org with the subject line NOCC21 delegate or NOCC21 trade stand.
