Ryan McCormack, Burden Bros Farm Manager has been named an Arable Innovator of the Year category finalist in the 2019 British Farming Awards. The Burden Bros Farm located at Old Rides, Eastchurch, Isle of Sheppey will compete against four finalists from around Great Britain for the coveted title.
Organised by AgriBriefing, parent company of Farmers Guardian, Arable Farming and Dairy Farmer, the British Farming Awards is supported by Morrisons.
Now entering its 7th year, the British Farming Awards has become a nationally recognised event which has celebrated, showcased and rewarded hundreds of British food and drink producers doing fantastic work across the sector.
Ryan McCormack Farm Manager said: “To be recognised as one of the top arable innovators in Great Britain in our first year of entering the awards is a great achievement for everyone at the farm. We strive to be innovative in all areas of the farm, with technology and agronomic insight being key to our arable farming success. Our diversification strategy has already generated new opportunities for us, such as our partnership with the Copper Rivet Distillery, and we have more to explore.”
The awards evening takes place on 17th October at the National Conference in Birmingham.
