Be the first to share!

A FARMING conference held in the region has been shortlisted for a national award.

The Ethical Farming Conference took place at Rainton Farm, near Castle Douglas, in May, and it is now in the running to be crowned the Best Business Event at this year’s Scottish Thistle Awards.

It will be up against three other events, with the winner revealed at a ceremony in Edinburgh in March. The category celebrates the importance of business events in showcasing Scotland’s world-class credentials to the world.

The conference, which focused on regenerative farming, was attended by 200 delegates. Judges were impressed by the innovation and collaboration that went into the organisation of the event with four farm businesses working together on the programming, networking, as well as the high-level ambition to discuss an emotive topic.
