Fertile Minds delegate Harry Holt

The Fertile Minds event in Berkshire brought together young farmers, business entrepreneurs, MP George Eustice and banking experts for presentations and workshops on how to succeed in business.

The free event, organised by Farmers Weekly and with the support of Tesco, gave young people the opportunity to hear advice and share ideas on setting up a farming or agricultural business.

There were presentations as well as practical workshops and the chance to network and mix with like-minded motivated individuals.
