The Scottish Farmer (Celebrating their 130th anniversary), AgriScot and the Royal Highland & Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS) are proud to announce the launch of the Scottish Agriculture Awards.
We want to hear from you who should be recognised at our inaugural awards and celebrate the best in our Scottish Agricultural Sector.
The Scottish Agriculture Awards are set to be a prestigious celebration of the best in Scottish agriculture, recognising excellence and innovation across a range of categories.
The glittering ceremony will be held in the Crown Plaza Hotel, near the SECC in Glasgow on October 26.
The awards aim to showcase the outstanding work of farmers, agricultural individuals, and businesses who are driving the industry forward and ensuring the sustainability and success of Scottish agriculture.
This week we are highlighting the Sustainable Farm of the Year category, sponsored by Polycrub and supported by Scottish Land and Estates.
Sustainable farming is important, if not imperative, to creating a future for our next generation of farmers.
We want to recognise those who are embracing sustainable practices while exploring new practices and ideas to support their goal of sustainability – but hurry – nominations and entries close on August 17 for this categy
Stephen Young of Scottish Land and Estates said: “We are delighted to support these awards and to recognise the significant contribution made by famers to sustainable land use for the benefit of nature, in addition to producing high quality food, which is a credit to Scotland.
“Farmers and landowners have embraced the immense change in the agricultural sector in recent years, proving their adaptability to deliver the range of goods that are a priority – including aspects such as water quality, nutrient neutrality, planting of trees and hedgerows, species monitoring and more. Scottish agriculture is at the forefront of environmental protection while maintaining jobs and producing food of outstanding quality.”
