Welcome to the British Farming Awards
2018 Finalists announced – see the shortlist here.
Farmers are at the heart of UK agriculture
With the Brexit process marching on, The British Farming Awards is a celebration of the every-day resilience and innovation demonstrated across the core sectors of our industry.
Organised by AgriBriefing, parent company to Farmers Guardian, Arable Farming and Dairy Farmer, there are 14 categories in total. All 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 showcase diversity and a willingness to adapt regardless of whether you are a farmer, farm worker, new entrant or a member of an established family business.
There is often a perception when entering awards that you have to be the biggest and the best in the industry, but the British Farming Awards aims to showcase innovation and adaptability – no matter what the size and scale of the business.
“You’ve got to take every opportunity that comes your way.”
“The award has been incredibly positive for our business giving us further recognition against all our retail partners.”
“I thought I wouldn’t get any further, it was a total shock.”
“It’s made me stand out from the crowd, especially with the bigger jobs in the industry.”
“Go for it – the benefits come from taking part.”
“If you think you are doing something genuinely innovative to do with the agricultural industry then it’s well worth entering.”
“The whole thing is an incredible experience.”
