As the Scottish Agriculture Awards grows closer, the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland talks about the importance of the sector and the awards.

There has never been more of a need to shout about all the exemplary work that Scottish farmers and farming businesses do day in, day out, 365 days of the year.

The disconnect between consumers and where their food comes from is widely known and debated, and it can be easy for people to lose sight of the fantastic efforts the agricultural community are making every day to improve their sector. Alongside our industry peers, we are dedicated to tackling this disconnect and re-framing farming in the minds of the general public. This is where the Scottish Agriculture Awards come in.
