SAC (Scottish Agricultural College) Diversification Event – in connection with Rural Skills Cumbria



Posted: December 8th, 2011

I was invited by Emily Maclean of the SAC to be a guest speaker at an agricultural diversification event held at Crooklands, near Kendal on Wednesday 7 December.

The event attracted a number of delegates in farming and rural business, all of whom were looking at ways to boost their income and improve their business position for the future. There were 7 speakers including myself, who covered a range of topics including renewable energy, food marketing and tourism. In the evening a similar event was held at Mitchell’s auction, Cockermouth, with Michael Peile presenting our topic; Diversification Start Up and Development.

It was a really enjoyable day/evening and a great opportunity for both Michael and I to speak at such an important event – a big thank you to Emily for the invite and for organising the event.
