Seminar for farming sector


Farmers from across the south west are expected to descend on the Royal Cornwall Showground next week for a specially organised business seminar on farm diversification and how to plan for future success.

These are the key themes for the agricultural event on Thursday February 25 (11am-2pm) being jointly hosted by the region’s only general insurance company Cornish Mutual, regional legal firm Stephens Scown and chartered accountant and business adviser Winter Rule.

The Pavilion Centre will be the venue for the seminar which is aimed at those involved in or considering diversifying their farm. As well as formal presentations from the three companies, an open-floor question and answer session will be chaired by Cornish Mutual’s managing director Alan Goddard. Guest panellists will include Catherine Mead, director of Lynher Dairies and Mike Rowe from Moorhayes Consultants Limited.

Goddard said: “This is a really valuable opportunity for farmers and those working in the agricultural industry in the region to get the right advice and information, direct from the experts, about legal or financial issues they may be dealing with when diversifying or planning to diversify. By the three companies coming together, it should provide a really good one-stop-shop and a more rounded approach in helping them to plan for the future.”
