Recognising the hard work, innovation and determination of farming, the awards showcase the achievements of farmers working within the UK agricultural industry.
Organised by Briefing Media Agriculture, parent company to Farmers Guardian, Arable Farming and Dairy Farmer, there are 15 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.
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.
At this year’s awards evening the winners of the Farmers Guardian Mart’s the Heart Awards have been announced. The awards, which highlight the vital role auctions and auctioneers play within the livestock industry, will be presented with their awards.
