OTB is excited to be starting 2021 at Oxford Real Farming Conference (ORFC) Global 2021 where we will be talking to farmers and growers about the work we do on behalf of our members and our plans to engage with the organic farming community in 2021.

ORFC Global 2021 will be held between 7-13 January and to find out more about registering for this event click here.

Connecting consumers with organic farmers
The OTB is at in an exciting new phase of our history and it is a critical time to present a united front and convey the message ‘Nature has the answer. Organic works with nature’.

We want to bring consumers closer to those passionate farmers who measure their success in terms of bees and trees, healthy soil, happy fulfilled lives, and pride in growing great food. Now is the time to share more stories about what it means to grow organic and why farmers are doing it; for themselves and for all of us, for Nature and for our planet.
