#FeedtheNation: Help us find farm heroes helping the community

Do you know a farmer who is going the extra distance to help vulnerable people in their rural community? 

Whether clearing snow-covered roads or rescuing stranded residents in flooded homes, time and again our amazing British farmers have helped the public in times of crisis.

Beyond producing food to feed the nation, we know there will be many public-spirited farmers out there who are doing their bit to make sure those who are most at risk from Covid-19 are protected and cared for.

The Farmers Weekly team want your help in recognising these truly inspirational rural heroes. Perhaps they’re delivering essentials to somebody who is unable to leave home, or checking in on the elderly to make sure they aren’t feeling cut off from society.

We have already told the stories of YFCs helping the vulnerable and farm shops offering deliveries and discounts to NHS workers. In this time of national emergency, we want to share the good work our farmers are doing.

To share a story with us, simply email our community editor Oli Hill or drop us a line on Facebook or Twitter. Don’t forget to tell us the name of the farming hero you want to recognise, where they’re from and what they’re doing to make a difference in their rural community.

#FeedtheNation

Farmers Weekly is getting behind the #FeedtheNation campaign to back UK farmers working flat out to produce safe, affordable and reliable food to feed the nation during the coronavirus crisis.

With our sponsors, AHDB, Arla, Grenadier and Tulip, we are raising public awareness of this campaign by highlighting the actions farmers are taking to get food to consumers.

Join in the campaign by sharing your stories with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #FeedtheNation or email us at philip.case@proagrica.com or telephone 020 8652 4905.
