The third edition of the Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU) ‘Beyond the Farm Gate’ series, will take place on Wednesday 9 December, 7.30pm via Zoom. It will feature UFU deputy president William Irvine and his farm.

Over 200 people tuned in for the second edition of the virtual farm walk which starred UFU deputy president David Brown and viewers got an insight into his farm business and management.

The virtual farm tour was filmed during the day but was aired in the evening allowing UFU members to watch it from the comfort of their own home.

When the tour of Mr Brown’s farm concluded, he went live for a question and answer session and viewers were able to put their questions to him.

100 percent of feedback rated the online event as good to excellent, deeming it a huge success. Feedback included, “Really enjoying these tours, very good set up and interesting to see how another sector is running a successful business”, “Very interesting and these tours should be continued even if virus allows us to get back to some normality” and “An excellent and most enjoyable series of meetings.”

Bookings are now open for the third edition of the ‘Beyond the Farm Gate’ series. To book, visit the UFU website and click on the events tab (www.ufuni.org/events).
