Excitement is mounting about this year’s “Big Show” – not only following its’ absence for two years, but moreover as Ministers, politicians and other stakeholders are clearly eager to engage with the rural community. As the Agriculture (Wales) Bill looms, there’s a great deal at stake for Welsh farmers and land managers. Nigel says. “There was a great sense of anticipation about the main event at the Royal Welsh Smallholder event in May. We’re eager to meet as many members as possible – not only to learn more about your business and what’s affecting you, but also to hear your views.”
