The NFU is all set to delve into what farmers can do to Brexit-proof their businesses and will also look at a host of other crucial topics during our highly-anticipated regional Brexit Conference.

Held on the first day of the Midlands Machinery Show at Newark Showground and with just months to go before Britain leaves the European Union, the conference will give everyone a chance to scrutinise the situation and work out the way forward.

We will explore all things Brexit, including timescales for change, the transition period and new policy timetable, as well as the Agriculture Bill.

The conference, chaired by NFU deputy president, Guy Smith, will also hear from speakers from JVFG Consulting, StablePrice, Barclays Bank plc, DEFRA and AHDB.

The NFU’s EU exit and international trade director, Nick von Westenholz, will also be on hand to update members on latest developments, give an overview of NFU activity and to scan the 12 months that will follow as we exit the EU.

Last year, guests joined us to take a look at how the agri supply chain was preparing for life out of the European Union with our inaugural NFU East Midlands Brexit Conference, “Business after Brexit”.

This year, we are turning things around 180 degrees to look at what you, as farmers, can do to build Brexit resilience into your business.
