Every year our readers share so many great moments with us in our galleries. It is brilliant to see life on the farm, captured in beautiful photos.  

The Farming Through a Lens, FW on tour and Young readers galleries are always very popular and, as we have reached the final month of the year, we thought we would pull out some of our favourite 2016 uploads.

9. and the holidaying readers…

Thank you to Phil who took us to New York, Las Vegas and the Caribbean. Miss Donger, who uploaded the sunny photo said: “When I asked Big Phil ‘Have you got everything?’, he replied: ‘Yep, Farmers Weekly’s in the case.’”
