Colchester: HGCA Monitor Farms get off to bright start, including Tom Bradshaw’s at Fordham

16:13 20 July 2014

Tom Bradshaw gives a tour of Fletcher

Tom Bradshaw gives a tour of Fletcher's Farm at the HGCA Monitor Farm event in Fordham on Tuesday, 26 June.

More than 270 arable farmers join HGCA Monitor Farm opening meetings across the country this summer, including 87 at a meeting at Tom Bradshaw’s farm at Fordham, near Colchester.

The meetings, held in June and July 2014, launched eight new HGCA Monitor Farms as part of a major initiative which will eventually see 24 Monitor Farms hosted across England and Wales. The Monitor Farms are a key component of cereals levy payers’ group HGCA’s business development programme, which will help farmers to understand their cost of production, address key technical challenges and deliver more profitable businesses. The eight hold their next meetings in October and November. Any interested farmers should contact their HGCA regional manager or go to hgca.com/get-involved/monitor-farms.
