Tickets are now on-sale for the online Northern Real Farming Conference (17-24 November) and the in-person gathering in Lancaster (2-3 December). We hope you will join us! The full programme will be released shortly, but for those of you wanting ticket, feel free to sign up now.

The second Northern Real Farming Conference is coordinated by LESS (a non-profit registered community interest company based in Lancaster) in partnership with FoodFutures and the Oxford Real Farming Conference. The conference is also supported in 2021 by Farming the Future.

The conference ticket income helps to cover the cost of a part-time coordinator for the event, licences/costs for on-line delivery and the website, design and curation of digital content and other event costs. Thank you to everyone who made donations to the event in 2020, which helped to ensure that the 2021 work has been possible. In the event that any small surplus is made from the 2021 event, the funds will be carried forward to support the next NRFC and to ensure the legacy of the events and networks.


Please note tickets for the in-person gathering include tea/coffee. Lunches will be available from local producers and can be booked separately at a later stage. Alternatively, you can bring your own lunch.
