What is Farmers Apprentice?

Farming is a career young people from all walks of life should have the opportunity to get into and consider a positive opportunity.

Farmers Apprentice is Farmers Weekly’s response to the challenge of recruiting bright young business minds into agriculture, by providing a platform from which people from all walks of life can get a foot on the farming ladder.
We’re scouring the country for bright young people with big career ambitions in agriculture to apply to take part in the 2014 Farmers Apprentice bootcamp, where one luck winner will walk-away with a £10,000 prize.

As in the 2012 bootcamp, the trials and tribulations of the 10 finalists will be showcased in a five-part documentary online in November 2014.

Watch the Farmers Apprentice videos to give you the inspiration to take part.

About bootcamp

The Farmers Apprentice 2014 will be a week-long crash course in what it takes to run a modern farming operation.

Expect early morning’s, late nights and a series of challenges that will test your farming talent right to the core.

Definitely not for the light hearted but an incredible chance to make your mark in British agriculture.

Bootcamp will take place at Easton & Otley College in Norfolk between 20-25 July.
