We are sorry to announce that this talk has been cancelled due to the developing situation with Coronavirus.

Scotland has a unique farming and land-use history and faces significant challenges with Brexit.  The role of farming and how it is shaped and supported is now a key issue for public debate.  This talk aims to explain a bit about how we got here and what choices we have if we are to develop a genuine Citizen’s Agricultural Policy.

Heather Anderson, together with her husband Pete Ritchie, has been farming organically at Whitmuir for 20 years, pioneering a short supply chain and diversifying the transitional upland farm with farm shop, cafe, butchery and home delivery service.
