You’ve got to be in it, to win it

Recognising hard work, innovation and determination in farming, the British Farming Awards recognise the achievements of grass roots farmers working within the UK agricultural industry.

There are 15 categories in total, recognising farming’s core sectors – arable, beef, sheep, dairy and machinery – as well as acknowledging the vast array of farm diversifications emerging as farmers add value to their businesses.

The awards aim to showcase innovation and adaptability – no matter what the size and scale of the business. They are organised by Briefing Media Agriculture, parent company of Farmers Guardian.

Group Editor Emma Penny said: “We are delighted with the success of the awards and that we have been able to recognise up-and-coming talent in the industry, as well as bringing well-deserved attention to those doing a great job for their own businesses and, in some cases (as with our Farming Hero award), the industry as a whole.

“If you have re-invented your business, changed your approach, developed a new agricultural input, adopted new technology or launched a farm diversification, we want to hear from you.”
