Syan Farms visit for vertical farming
THINK YOU KNOW FARMING? THINK AGAIN! JOIN NORTHAMPTONSHIRE ACRE AT A FREE TOUR OF A VERTICAL FARM
Find out more about vertical growing at Syan Farms on August 23 – with a free guided tour of the home of automatized agriculture in Northamptonshire.
Learn how multiple level growing offers a more sustainble solution to traditional agriculture at Syan Farms, in Horton. Tour guide for the event will be owner Preyesh Patel, who will show visitors how this farm is sustainably managed, water efficient and reducing food miles.
Preyesh said "Is the future of farming vertical? Join us and see how we are producing food in a sustainable way, yielding a substantial amount per acre and showing how it can be used for a wide variety of tasty food.” Shena Cooper of Fruitful Abundance will be using produce from Syan Farms as part of the wonderful lunch being served at the Grow Green Together symposium.
The free Syan Farms Visit runs from 4pm to 5pm on Tuesday, August 23rd. There is limited availability – only eight can visit the site on the day – so please book early to avoid disappointment.
