Best of the Blogs: Catch up with the latest on the FW blogs

Farmers Weekly’s selection of blogs – a sort of online diary – continue to grow in popularity.

They are a great place to visit for news, views, gossip and even a bit of humour. Don’t forget you can always add your own comment to any of the posts.

Here’s a selection of some of the best bits:

  • Did you realise that Farmers Weekly has found itself some fans among the farmers of Afghanistan? I suspect they are a bit perplexed by Farmer Frank but I’m sure they enjoy the pictures! To find out more read Tim Relf’s Field Day blog.


  • Are the new breed of country sportsmen giving shooting a bad name? City bankers who are obsessed by the size of their bag are putting the enjoyment of more modest shooting men at risk, argues David Richardson on David’s Digest.


  • Do you know your emos from your chavs? Well, take a look at Matthew Naylor’s Longer View blog and give yourself an education. While you’re at it, if you know of anyone who can offer work experience to a keen lad in Northumberland read on…


  • Hot off the press are the names of the judges for this year’s Royal Smithfield Christmas Fair. For details read our livestock and sales blog Taking Stock.


  • Finally, remember the TV show Kill it, Cook it, Eat it which was screened earlier this year and showed the meat production process from field to fork? Food For Thought reveals there is going to be a second series and the production company is looking for audience members.
