Along with how this impacts energy production, supply and consumption, for Industry, transport and domestic use.


2.30 pm Thursday 22 nd February 2024

Will Dickinson of Cross Farm, Harpenden

I would intend to talk a bit about the history of our time here and to also link that history with what we do now, how it has changed and how it has not and to talk a bit about where we might be heading in the future, including food, farming, leisure and the environment.

I hope that we will have a good and challenging discussion about all things agricultural, genetic, mechanical and chemical. I have an appearance on Clarkson's Farm but if you blink you will miss it!

It would be good to speak to your members and share the history of the farm here, we have been here since 1815 and I am the sixth generation to farm here my son is the seventh.’
