The next Young Innovators’ Forum visit will be at Wicken Farm in Stretham on Thursday 17 May, starting at 6pm. The farm includes a mix of arable and livestock farming, as well as diversification projects and on farm trials. There’s also an onsite pump, keeping the Fens from re-flooding! Come and challenge your assumptions about farming and see the innovation and research being undertaken by farmers.
