The award was introduced as part of last year’s British Farming Awards and is a chance for you to help highlight those who you admire, respect and make you proud of the industry we work in.

 

Every farmer faces their own challenges and, instead of shying away from tackling them head on, they call upon their resilience, work ethic and strength of spirit to come out of the other side.

 

If you know of an individual or a group of individuals who have gone that extra mile when the odds are stacked against them, taken stock, fought back for the greater good for themselves or for the industry or for other family or friends then we want you to share them with us.

 

Do you know a farming hero?

 

 

Last year, the award was presented to a farming trio – Andrew Ward, Lincolnshire; Ed Ford, Essex; and Rebecca Horsington, Somerset – for their tireless efforts when flooding swamped the Somerset Levels early last year.

 

Over the subsequent weeks and months, they were instrumental in organising a fleet of 70 lorry-loads of forage and bedding from across the country to help ease the burgeoning crisis under #forageaid, a campaign Andrew first established during the terrible snowstorms in spring 2013.

 

Rebecca says: “Winning Farmers Guardian’s Farming Hero award with the #forageaid team was such an achievement because it recognised the unique situation we had to deal with. It was an award for each and every farmer who donated forage, fodder or bedding or who helped during such a trying time.”
