Oxford Real Farming Conference 2018

Oxford Real Farming Conference 2018

4th Jan 2018 to 5th Jan 2018
Oxford Town Hall

In 2009 the agricultural writer Graham Harvey (now of Pasture Promise TV) invited Colin Tudge and Ruth West (founders of the Campaign for Real Farming) to help establish a new kind of farming conference.

It was to bring together practising, mud-on-the-boots farmers and growers with scientists and economists, and activists and lawyers, and everyone else with a serious interest in food and agriculture. The idea was and is to ask the really big questions – like what kind of farming do we really need and why; but also to focus at least equally on the minutiae of practice – and to see who, right now, in Britain and the world at large, is truly farming and marketing and cooking in ways that the world really needs, and others can emulate.

So in January 2010, the Oxford Real Farming Conference was launched in the late mediaeval library attached to the University Church of St Mary’s in Oxford’s High Street. In part we conceived the ORFC as the antidote to the official, Oxford Farming Conference, which for the past 60 years has presented the Establishment view and of late has encouraged farmers to focus on high tech, and trust to the global market.

But the point of the ORFC is not to attack the status quo but to look ahead — to ask what the world really needs, and what’s possible, and to show what really can be done. Always on the agenda, or thereabouts, is the dream of Agrarian Renaissance: to restore agriculture and all that goes with it to its proper place at the heart of the economy, and indeed of all our lives. Agriculture at present, and farmers, are marginalised. The thing that matters most for humankind is low on the global agenda.

From the outset, the ORFC had a buzz. Farmers and scientists and activists and all the rest really did come together, and in several cases known to us and doubtless many more that we don’t know about, they established new working relationships and began new initiatives. So we knew we had to do it all again – and the 2017 ORFC will be our 8th. Sessions over the years have ranged from the intricacies of soil microbiology to new kinds of marketing, micro-dairies, mob grazing and agroforestry; from the joys and tribulations of crofting, to the kind of economic structure we need to support the kind of farming and marketing that we need, to the underlying morality of farming – why some ways of doing things are better than others; and many more.

We are also exploring new ways of structuring farms – with groups of like-minded people running various quasi-independent but linked farming and related enterprises in the same space, to form a cooperative or a partnership that is more efficient biologically, more robust economically, and more convivial, than any one person can achieve alone.

The ORFC has grown year by year. In 2017 we had over 950 delegates over the two days, half of which were farmers (which in Britain, is a very good turn-out).

Budwig, Gerson, Overcoming MS & why Linseed (Flax) Oil is key - Session 1

11th Apr 2018 at 10:30 to 11th Apr 2018 at 14:30
The Linseed Farm, Muntham, Barns Green, Nr Horsham, RH13 0NH

Here at The Linseed Farm we are dedicated to help spread understanding of the oils and fats that are the raw materials for building our amazing body. We are still a basic Stone Age chemical factory, we think the more you know about these raw materials the better.

Many people are turning to linseed oil, or as the Americans call it, flax oil as a vital ingredient for several therapies including The Gerson Therapy, The Budwig Protocol and Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis.

Our three days are designed to help you have a greater understanding of the role of fats in the body. Durwin our farmer uses his museum of Linseed and Flax to help tell the story. You will be able to taste the oil fresh from the press and there will be plenty of time for questions.

Arrival 10.30 for 11.00 refreshments, tour of the barns and see the oil pressing. Then back to the lecture room for the main part of the talk. Followed by lunch at about one o’clock followed by a talk and demonstration of tapping and how that can be part of recovery.

Exclusive: Linseed & Lavender Skin Cream

You can also buy our new handmade linseed and lavender skin cream.

Twenty 50ml pots were given out for trials. The most often reported effect was used as a night face cream “it helps me sleep”. Improvements were also reported for sun damaged skin and generally that the linseed cream is really hydrating and that means smoother skin.

So once again the wonderful Linum Usitatissimum, Latin name meaning “most useful”, is providing yet another way of getting Linseed in your life.

As part of a normal beauty regime, linseed oil in the diet works from the inside out to give you healthy skin, strong nails, glossy hair and many other reported benefits. So it’s great to be able to have a skin cream for general external use as well as for problem areas.
