The number of grassroots farmers taking part exceeded all expectations and is a testament to the resilience and passion of our country’s food producers and countryside custodians.

 

Farmers Guardian editor Ben Briggs said: "24 Hours in Farming once again showcased the high standards, innovation and diversity at the heart if British agriculture and, importantly, the people who produce the food that feeds the nation.

 

"It is so important that, as an industry, we promote the industry we are so proud of and that is why 24 Hours in Farming plays such a key role in shouting about British farming to a wide and varied audience.

 

"With Morrisons once again supporting the event, it was great to see more farmers than ever before sharing the #Farm24 hashtag and making it the number one social media event of the year for British ag."
