What is 24 hours in Farming?

Following the success of the 2015 event, this summer FG Insight, along with our sponsor NFU Mutual, is once again hosting 24 Hours in Farming. Over the course of 24 hours, we want to get as many people from all over the industry as possible to tell us what they are doing throughout the day.



Farmers Guardian group editor Emma Penny explains: “We want to highlight everything farmers, their families and the industry round it does, to show how hard-working farming is and exactly how much effort goes into producing the food and shaping the countryside we all enjoy.

“We’ll be compiling a live story over the 24 hours to give a live and interactive picture of how much passion, determination and work goes into farming and maintaining rural Britain.”

How to take part

From 5am on August 18 until 5am on August 19, we want everyone involved in the UK agricultural industry and allied industries to take part by telling us what you are doing during the 24 hours.

Can you keep it up for 24 hours?
