Miscanthus farm walks this autumn

The latest dates for autumn Miscanthus farm walks have been announced. Free of charge, the walks are designed to show farmers everything that’s involved with growing Miscanthus.

The walks are hosted on a farm growing the crop, and run by Terravesta, the Miscanthus supply chain experts. At the events, the company presents on the life cycle of the crop then runs through spring planting and harvesting, the limited crop maintenance required, and outlines the growing markets for it. There are chances to ask any burning questions you have at any point in the day.

There is always an opportunity to head out and look at a Miscanthus crop with the grower host, and a chance to mingle and speak to the Terravesta team about how Miscanthus could fit into your business model.

Spaces are limited so book on today by visiting the Terravesta homepage or contact Jacob Duce, E: [email protected] T: 01522 731873.

Terravesta always provides refreshments in the form of a breakfast buffet or a light lunch.
