Farmers Guardian Farming Hero

Sponsored by

The farming community is like no other. From the way communities come together to outstanding individuals who lead by example and inspire positive change in others, our industry is filled with good will, spirit and strength.

This special and bespoke award recognises an individual or a group of people who strive to make a positive difference to the lives of other people during times of uncertainty or adversity. They may also be campaigning to raise awareness to the wider industry and beyond about issues affecting every-day life with measurable success.

This award is chosen by the Farmers Guardian team and will be announced on the evening of the British Farming Awards.

“[Mental health] is the biggest issue in our sector currently, we’re doing thing to look at our animals health, how to diversify and how we cope post-brexit, but actually we’re not taking much care on how we look after ourselves. It’s a huge message that needs to get across, we need to look after our mental health”
