Thanks for all the great photos you’ve been sending us for our Farmlife Framed series.
From the serious and the scenic to the fun and the funny, your pictures are a great insight into farming life across the nation.
Don’t forget, too, that the 2018 Farmers Weekly photography competition is open for entries until 23 November and is offering a £250 prize, so if you have any pictures you’re particularly proud of, don’t forget to enter the competition.
Meanwhile, here are just a few of the Farmlife Framed shots that have caught our eye recently.
“Turns out that the gold at the end of the rainbow is a load of dung!” says Miles Coward. An agricultural engineer, Miles helps out occasionally on the family farm on the northern edge of Dartmoor, where they keep Red Ruby Devons plus a few sheep.
Ollie Halls reading his favourite magazine with his trusty digger close at hand. “One happy little boy,” says mum Rebecca from Essex.
Leo Mahon shared this shot of a New Zealand CrossSlot drilling Gleam winter wheat on the family farm near Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire. “We’ve found this autumn fairly straightforward, with the settled weather allowing us to delay drilling where necessary,” he says.
Thanks to James Merriman for sending in this picture – his two-year-old son Seb is ready to crack on with farming in Pembrokeshire in his new John Deere overalls!
Susan Thomas sent us this shot of drilling at Flecknoe Fields Farm, a family business in Warwickshire. Leeds winter wheat is going in the ground, using a Khun Combi seed drill. “The farming year for 2018 has been a struggle with the long, cold winter and dry summer,” says Susan. “Yields are down, as with most farmers, but the price has increased, so there is some compensation.”
Thanks to Darren Willey from Newcastle upon Tyne for this one. “Collecting bales in the sunshine while a storm goes around us,” is how he describes the scene.
A great slogan on little Logan’s t-shirt: ‘I’m a farming baby – like a normal baby, but much cooler’. Thanks to mum Sarah McBurnie for the photo.
