Events and Activities
We’re a resource, a network, a knowledge hub, a place for professionals working in Norfolk’s rural land based industries to share ideas and skills.
We understand our members’ busy work-life balance and plan meetings accordingly. Working around the farming calendar, we meet up to six times a year, doing a variety of things, mixing social and business activities.
YIELD provides a platform for informed debate and gets to the heart of the matters, which concern members. The group engages high calibre speakers and also arranges exclusive social activities for members.
