It is always a difficult task to pick the winners for the 2012 Farmers Weekly Awards and this year has been no different. Over the past 15 weeks, we have focused on what we believe are some of the most outstanding farming businesses in the UK.

Every one of the businesses we have featured shows great technical and business excellence. Taken as a group our finalists are evidence of the world-class operators we have in UK farming.

They are producers who are deeply committed to their careers in agriculture and take pride in their contribution to society as a whole.

You can read more about them on our dedicated website. All are well worth a look – their hard work, enthusiasm and achievements prove that the British farming industry is a success story.
