The Countryfile Farming Hero

The Countryfile Farming Hero

The winner of this year’s Countryfile Farming Hero Award is 82 year old farmer Joan Bomford. Joan has always been at the heart of the local community in Worcestershire. As well as running a beef farm and a riding school she raises money for charities and has brought up four children. The past year has been very difficult for Joan, after the death of her husband of sixty years and losing her brother in a tragic accident. Our judges were hugely impressed by Joan’s role in the local community and by the way that Joan still soldiers on with her passion for farming and has no intention of retiring just yet!
