The ability to make difficult decisions is a defining role of the modern farmer. Managing these decisions under the increasing political, economic and personal pressures faced by the industry, can be both challenging and overwhelming.

On the 11 March the Hereford Monitor Farm will be joined by Geoff Sansome (Head of Agriculture, Natural England) and Emma Picton-Jones (DPJ Foundation) to discuss the future opportunities in income streams for farmers and how we can be best equipped to embrace these opportunities.

Geoff Sansome is Head of Agriculture at Natural England, the Government’s champion for the Natural Environment. He has worked extensively in agricultural and rural development in the UK and overseas. Initially Geoff was an Agronomist, and then worked on a range of technical assistance projects in Eastern Europe.

After the tragic death of her husband, Emma Picton-Jones launched a foundation to improve mental health awareness among farmers. Her vision far exceeded expectation and she has since galvanised agricultural communities and inspires farmers to understand how to take control of stressful scenarios and maintain a positive attitude.
