About the event

NIAB   and Savills are putting on a Free open farm event with Mike Powley at   Oak House Farm, Green Hammerton, located between Harrogate and York.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to have a tour around his mixed regenerative   farm to see first-hand, how, and why, he has adopted these practices and the benefits he is seeing to his soils, cattle, and bottom line, whilst being   able to claim payments through the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI).

After the tour we will be heading to The Anchor Inn, Whixley for a pub lunch and an   open forum with speakers from NIAB and Savills who will be answering some of   the all-important SFI questions:

-   Which options to go for?

-   Which Herbal ley mix will work best for my system?

-   What are the consequences of SFI on my farm business?
