Rural Roundup (27th July)

In this fortnight’s edition of the rural roundup we get the latest news from Tiffany Mactaggart and we speak to George Chalmers and Robert Ramsay about regenerative agriculture and organics. We hear about the latest instalment of the personal development book club from Janette Sutherland and find out about a brand new Dragon’s Den imitative for new entrants to farming. Finally, we speak to Rosanna Fraser from Bidwells to find out what’s on their desk.
