Autumn Journal: First ever Club Food book

The Autumn Farmers Club Journal includes details of the first ever “Food at The Farmers Club” book, plus reports on BCPC Plant Breeding Seminar, the urban disconnect, rural development, our Club to Country initiative and a wide range of Summer Events

The Farmers Club has a well-earned reputation for producing simply cooked, seasonal, quality British food. A new book to champion the work of Paul Hogben, Head Chef & Director of Food, and his team is due, including sumptuous photography by Jonathan Pollock.

The Harvest issue of the Farmers Club Journal – now arriving with members – also reports on a joint seminar with the British Crop Production Council, which highlighted the potential for novel breeding technologies to boost farm productivity – regulations permitting.

Further articles explore the crucial issue of farm succession planning to smooth the farm’s transition to the next generation, and a poignant insight into the thorny issue of engaging the attention of city-dwellers, especially the next generation.

A host of wonderful Club Events are reported on, including a wide range of Summer Events, plus the very successful Club to Country initiative, which engaged with almost 7% of the membership this summer.

Further content includes:

  • Under 30s Meet-a-Member profile
  • Club News
  • 3 Whitehall Court entrance works
  • Golf mid-term report
  • Agri-Tech in figures
  • Poetry of the land
  • Club Christmas Cards
  • Chef’s page - sampling Champagne
  • Under 30s Summer Cocktail Evening

Finally, the Journal details a host of events planned for the rest of the year and early 2020, including the Club’s Annual Harvest Festival and Supper at the Club afterwards (8 Oct) and Cirque du Soleil  at the Royal Albert Hall (24 Jan).
