About this event

Right now, farm businesses are facing a multitude of challenges: climate change, unpredictable weather patterns, changes to future farm payment schemes and adjusting to new consumer demands. But as research shows, farm businesses can improve resilience by utilising the most powerful asset at their disposal: nature.

When farmers make nature a shareholder in their business by working with it instead of against it, there are real opportunities to become profitable and adaptable in the long term.

This conference, with guest speakers and a live Q&A, will tackle farm business concerns to show where and how this can be achieved. Our workshops will offer practical solutions for adapting your business and will provide actionable insights on working towards the Maximum Sustainable Output (MSO) of your farm, using real–life learnings from farmers who have changed their approach.

Accountants, economists, scientists and other supporting industry professionals will be showing how nature has an impact on both climate change and the ‘bottom line’ of business.
