Farming Life editor Ruth Rodgers praised the fantastic cross section of finalists there are this year which recognise all areas of the Northern Ireland farming industry.

She added: “Our awards are a great opportunity to shine a light on all the great things and hard work that goes on within our industry and this year will be no exception.

“It is always fascinating to read the entries and to learn more about the stories of each particular farm or business. Every year the people within our industry demonstrate their commitment, versatility and innovation as they take on day to day challenges, embrace new technology or ways of farming and work hard to ensure the success of their enterprise.


“The awards night promises to be a great evening with good food, good company, entertainment and a spotlight on a diverse range of people, companies and organisations.

“We are really looking forward to turning a spotlight on those individuals and showing yet again all that is great about our farming way of life.

“If you want to be a part of the night, then tickets are on sale now.”

Winners will be announced at a prestigious black tie awards ceremony at the Crowne Plaza in Belfast on Wednesday 5th October. Tickets are available for sale until Wednesday and can be purchased at
