Media Release – MR18/23 – GREAT YORKSHIRE SHOW SPECIAL DEBATE: PREPARING TENANT FARMERS FOR THE POST BREXIT ERA

The Tenant Farmers Association (TFA) is joining forces with leading North-East land agents, George F White to host a special farm tenancy debate on the TFA stand at this year’s Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate.

 

Robyn Peat and Matthew Brown from George F White will provide an expert overview of issues relating to farm rent reviews, tenancy succession, and other specific issues that the tenanted sector needs to address as we head towards a future outside of the European Union.

 

TFA Chief Executive, George Dunn will join Robyn and Matthew for an open question and answer session following the main presentations.

 

TFA North East Chairman, Stephen Wyrill said “We are delighted to be working with George F White once again.  It is important that tenant farmers are given access to specific, expert advice, and I am sure that both Robyn and Matthew will give immense value to those who attend this free event open to all tenant farmers, whether or not they are TFA members and anyone else with an interest.  Adding the TFA’s Chief Executive to the panel for questions and answers will ensure a top notch experience for everyone who attends”.

 

“Brexit will bring major change to our industry including both opportunities and challenges.  It is important that farm businesses are in the right shape to maximise the benefit of the new opportunities that will arise, and prepare for any challenges needing to be overcome.  The tenanted sector of agriculture faces unique issues by virtue of the statute governing agricultural tenancies, and the contracts in place between individual landlords and tenants.  I cannot think of anywhere better for tenant farmers and others attending the Yorkshire show this year to receive such great advice, than attending this special debate on the TFA stand,” said Mr Wyrill.
