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.”
The third edition in the online farm tour series featuring UFU deputy president William Irvine and his farm, will take place on Wednesday 9 December, 7.30pm via Zoom.
UFU deputy president David Brown featured in the second edition of the online series 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.
