When you take a moment, the mad dash of spring cultivation, drilling, spreading and spraying is a beautiful and exciting thing to watch.

Quiet arable fields are woken from their winter nap by a flurry of activity, signaling the turn of the seasons, a cue for crops to get growing again and a welcome excuse for farmers to spend less time sat in the office.

To celebrate, we’ve selected 21 of our favourite spring work photos from Instagram to share with you.

Why not give Farmers Weekly a follow on Instagram? We love seeing your photos and if you include the hashtag #farmlifeframed in your farming or family related snaps, they could get cherry-picked to appear in the magazine.
