Farmers Weekly readers are capturing the highs and lows of harvest 2021 in photos and entering them by the hundred into our “Harvest Front Cover” picture competition.
We’ll be sharing a selection of the entries through the season on our website, social media channels and in the magazine, and will publish the winner as the magazine’s main cover image in September.
There is no limit to the number of pictures you can submit, but they must be your own and taken this year. The higher the resolution, the better (ideally a minimum file size of 2MB).
When uploading your entries, please include a short description telling us where the photo was taken and what it shows.
You can visit fwi.co.uk/harvest-2021 for more information and to submit your entries.
The deadline is 11.59pm on 2 September 2021.
1. “Tea time” was submitted by Laura Rooke. “Our three children – Reggie, Ted and Hettie – enjoy those moments telling dad all about their day while he eats his tea during a long harvest day,” says Laura.
2. “Rob has the baling under way in Farnsfield, Nottinghamshire,” says Rach Donger.
3. “This is a photo of me corn carting and my son combining wheat in Woodham Walter, near Maldon, Essex,” says Gail Mountier. “I’m sharing this to highlight women in agriculture of all ages and the importance of families pulling together in farming.”
4. “Old and new burning the midnight oil” is the title of this image from Neville Caldbeck. Neville and his son-in-law Louis Kilcoyle were cutting winter wheat at Ballymurphy House Farm, Tullow, County Carlow.
5. Penny Whitehurst submitted this one of “Katie the Combine” at sunset, being driven by her husband in Staffordshire.
6. James Butlin says: “One of the John Deere tractors in front of Chesterton Windmill, Warwickshire, which dates back to 1632 and forms part of Squab Hall Farm. The windmill provides a great backdrop for photos and views across the Warwickshire countryside.”
7. Thirteen-year-old Joel Wood from Cambridgeshire took this picture. “My favourite part is the hay bales in the background,” says Joel.
8. Angelina Bolton captured this moment at Newbottle Estate, Northamptonshire. “The hard-working farming team getting the job done, with Jordan Bolton driving the tractor and his colleagues on the combines,” she said.
