Our Vision

We want to make knowledge and experiences accessible to anyone who is interested, and we hope to inspire people to farm the best way they possibly can. The wisdom has to travel back and forth in a world without borders made by countries, welfare or educational level. Tips, tricks, and observations have to be accessible to every farmer, consultant, scientist, and buyer of farm products.  

PROFESSIONAL TEAM
Our presenters for lectures have produced the lectures themselves, and they are professionals in their fields of expertise. At the end of each lecture, the contact information of the precentor and the head editor will be easy to find. Questions and comments are VERY welcome.
