“The agricultural show in Paris is an important media event to talk about agriculture and food. But this showcase is only partial and biased, because it does not reflect the realities of our farms and our territories,” affirms the Peasant Confederation which is organizing the 2024 edition of the Farm Show.
By opening the doors of hundreds of farms throughout France, the Conf’ intends to present “what peasant agriculture is” and to discover the reality of its professions. This year, the Farm Show will notably address the issue of food sovereignty. Subject which will be developed at the Déplaude estate in TartarasThursday, in the presence of students from the Montravel horticultural high school in Villars.
