Leading agricultural companies will be ‘farming through the ages’ at an annual dinner for Harper Adams University students next week.
Frontier Agriculture, British Sugar, Oaklands Farm Eggs, Tesco, Lloyd’s Animal Feeds, Wynnstay, Alltech, Countrywide Farmers and Tanners Wines have all chosen to sponsor the agriculture, business and food courses dinner.
The event is one part of the end of year celebrations at the university, and this year features a Pimms reception followed by a three-course dinner.
Entertainment is in the form of guest speaker and Shropshire dairy farmer, Martin Jones from Three Men in a Bow Tie, with music from local band, Airbag.
Publicity Officer and agriculture student, 20-year-old Amy Sharpe, said: “We are really pleased that such well-known companies have chosen to support the event.
“It’s one of the highlights of the social calendar for students and we are all looking forward to meeting representatives from the companies at the dinner.”
The theme is ‘farming through the ages’ and students are being encouraged to creatively embrace the theme.
Head of Agriculture, Russell Readman, will be joined by other lecturers to summarise the year’s achievements as after dinner speeches.
