  • Are you a farmer who champions a way of farming that is sustainable and good for nature?
  • Do you believe that farming and nature can go hand in hand?
  • Do enjoy raising awareness of nature-friendly farming by sharing insights and experience?
  • Do you work with your local community for better food and farming policies?

Whatever your farming background, big or small, organic or conventional, if you are passionate about restoring our countryside, reversing declines in nature and creating a thriving & sustainable farming business – then you could be the farmer we are looking for!

Nominations close on Monday 20th September, with the winner to be announced at an awards ceremony at the La Mon Hotel & Country Club in Newtownards on Thursday 28th October.

Entry is via self-nomination on the Farming Life Awards website.
