Eight young farmers chosen to promote British farming in 802nd Lord Mayor's Show #yfcdoitbest

The ‘farming champions’, each from one of the NFU’s seven English regions and Wales, were chosen for their outstanding contribution to the agricultural sector and will promote the Back British Farming message during the 802nd Lord Mayor’s Show on November 11.

 

They will be alongside the NFU supporting The Worshipful Company of Farmers with New Holland in its adventure to the City of London.

 

Lancashire young farmer Hannah Binns, 20, who will represent the North West, said: “I am excited to work alongside the other seven young farmers in promoting our hardworking but rewarding industry.

 

“This experience is a once in a lifetime and I cannot wait to grasp the opportunity to engage with the general public to promote the back British farming message.”

The show will include 7,500 participants, 200 horses, 140 floats, 20 marching bands, dancers, performers, armed forces and Modern Livery Companies.

 

NFU vice president Guy Smith added: “It was a tough selection process from all the nominations we received. But I know the eight young farmers chosen will do a fantastic job on the day as they all share a passion and an enthusiasm about what they do – playing a vital role in producing the nation’s food.

 

“Farmers deliver for our economy, providing jobs and driving growth in rural communities. We provide the raw materials for a domestic food industry that employs 3.8m people and generates £109bn in value for the UK economy.

 

“The Lord Mayor’s show provides us with the perfect opportunity to showcase the best of British farming to millions of people and explain the crucial role of British farming and its vital place in the wider food industry.”

The eight young farmers selected are:

  • Greg Colebrook, 26, from Cambridgeshire, representing East Anglia
  • Hannah Binns, 20, from Lancashire, representing the North West
  • Jack Davis, 21, from Kent, representing the South East
  • Jessica Spencer, 20, from Nottinghamshire, representing the East Midlands
  • John Throup, 32, from North Yorkshire, representing the North East
  • Ryan Came-Johnson, 26, from Cornwall, representing the South West
  • Dom Bloxham, 25, from Staffordshire, representing the West Midlands
