2019 FRA Regional Meetings

Regional meetings are an opportunity for farm shops, PYO operators and Farmers’ Markets to meet up with fellow farm retailers in your area. A chance to visit another business, to network and to talk about common issues. Meetings may also include a guest speaker. 

Regional Meetings

Below is the calendar of Regional Meetings for 2019. This will be added to as meetings are confirmed and dates will be communicated via email and put on the members only Facebook Group. We are planning at least one meeting held in each region during the year with additional dates and venues added subject to local interest & demand. 

You don’t have to limit yourself to your own region, members are welcome and encouraged to attend any of the regional meetings.

Regional meetings are intended for farm shop owners/market operators to share information and support. Specific Associate trade members may on occasion be invited to intend and give a talk/demonstration. If you are an Associate trade member interested in attending one of the meetings please contact the FRA office.
