Farmers from across Warwickshire and beyond will tour a diversified, mixed agricultural business which has a focus on production alongside environmental gains.

The NFU carbon walk on 30 June will see farmers and growers meet up at Manor Farm, Draycote (CV23 9RB). 

The event, put together by NFU environment and land use adviser Georgie Hyde, will start at 6.30pm and is entitled ‘environmental delivery in a turbulent world’.

Georgie said: "William Morton, farm owner, will guide us around the farm discussing his involvement with various environmental schemes, diversification projects and the move from farming organically to a more conventional approach.

"I am also pleased to welcome Ceris Jones, NFU climate change adviser, who will discuss the potential of the carbon market, cover greenhouse gas emissions and the benefits of auditing."   

"Net zero will also feature and the union and its members are already taking positive steps to help the agriculture sector achieve net zero by 2040."

NFU West Midlands and the Rugby, Coventry and Lutterworth NFU branch are holding the event by kind permission of Morton Farms.

Refreshments will be provided, and farmers are asked to book a place on the tour in advance by calling the NFU regional office on 01952 400500 or [email protected] by email.
