Countryfile's Farming Heroes Award 2015

Countryfile's Farming Heroes Award 2015

Do you know a Farming Hero? Someone who has gone above and beyond to help their countryside friends and neighbours? Someone of whom we can all be proud?

Our own farming treasure, Adam Henson will be launching the Countryfile Farming Heroes Award on the programme on Sunday 1st February - and we’d like you to suggest the farmer or farming family you think has made a difference through their heroic actions. Perhaps they helped a fellow farmer in a time of crisis, rescued animals stranded in a storm, or have been an inspiration to others. We want to celebrate the remarkable people who make our countryside a better place.

Once nominations open on Sunday 1st February, you can put forward your Farming Hero in an online form which will appear on this page. The winner will be chosen by an esteemed panel of judges, including Adam, and will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Bristol Food Connections festival in April 2015.

The award is part of the 2015 BBC Food and Farming Awards
