Photos: Farmers share their fantastic festive farm photos

Christmas is upon us and we’ve been asking you to share photos of what your farm looks like this festive season.

We’ve been impressed by your entries to our Christmas on the farm photo competition so far, with cute and hilarious farm animals donning Santa hats and tinsel.

Remember, we’ll be picking our three favourite festive farm photos and giving away heaps of Farmers Weekly goodies as prizes, including a 2019 Farmers Weekly diary worth £24.99.

Upload your photos by 6 January 2019 to be in with a chance of bagging some rare Farmers Weekly merchandise for yourself. We want to see amazing farm decorations, incredible Christmas roast dinners, snaps of farm work on the big day and family selfies during the big day.

We’ve cherry-picked some of our favourites so far.

We’re loving Yorkshire Dales farmer Richard Paul’s snowman bale art.

This is Scott Maplethorpe’s favourite “bae” called Betty. “I bought her as reared calf in 2015 this was her first Christmas with me, I then kept her on. She’s my baby,”” he says.
