Devon’s agricultural industry is being reminded that they have until March 16 to nominate local farmers for this year’s Devon Farm Business Awards, staged by the Addington Fund, Devon County Agricultural Association and Stephens Scown Solicitors.
There are six categories for which farmers can enter or be nominated: best commercial farmer, best dairy farmer, best woman in farming, the CAVV John Neason Farm Diversification Award, Devon’s farming champion and best young farmer.
In addition, the judges will choose Devon’s Farmer of the Year from among the category winners and also present a Lifetime Achievement award. The awards will be announced and presented at a prestigious dinner on the eve of the Devon County Show, which this year runs from May 17-19 at Westpoint, Exeter.
Addington Fund Trustee Sheila Cole said that there had already been an encouraging number of nominations for this year’s awards, but stressed how important they were in making a statement about the pride and resilience of Devon farming, at a particularly difficult time for the industry.
Nominations for the awards close on March 16 and forms are available from the Addington Fund www.addingtonfund.org.uk/events.
