The Arable Event – one of the largest farming events in the Midlands – is returning to the Shropshire-Staffordshire border this summer.
More than 1,500 people are expected to attend the one-day event. It is due to take place on 7 June at Woodlands Farm, which is part of Bradford Estates, outside Weston-under-Lizard, near Shifnal.
Organised by Wynnstay and GrainLink, the event will include exhibition stands, machinery demonstrations and extensive trial plantings. Trial plots will include winter and spring cereals and cover crops, said event organiser Kelly Dolphin.
As well as trial plot tours and machinery demonstrations, the event will include a free moisture meter clinic run by Sinar Technology, an open air speakers tent and trade stands from a range of agricultural businesses.
“We have extensive cereal trial plots, expert speakers, the chance to see the latest machinery and the opportunity to collect BASIS and NroSO points. Every guest gets a free goody bag, refreshments and programme, so you won’t need to break the bank to attend.”
Woodlands Farm is operated by Bradford Farming. Their ambition is to establish the largest regenerative farm in the West Midlands, with a vision to create a market leading agribusiness focused on sustainable farming systems.
The Arable Event is held on land that is mainly light sandy soils with a little body – a mixture of Grade 2 and 3 medium/heavy loams.
Entry is free but tickets should be pre-booked wherever possible. For full details about the event, visit www.thearableevent.co.uk
