The 2019 OF&G National Organic Combinable Crops will be held on 3 July in Yorkshire at the Thompson family farm, who have been farming organically since 1949. The event will therefore offer a unique insight into the longevity of organic farming systems.

Richard and Sue Thompson's farm is a mixed operation with arable, including wheat, barley and beans, and potatoes alongside a livestock enterprise that includes organic pigs.

At the Organic Combinable Crops event OF&G will be hosting UK Grain Lab with a team of excellent chefs and bakers in tandem with some brilliant talks alongside practical demonstrations on the farm, giving visitors the opportunity to see some of the very best innovations in organic food and farming.
