Stock, crops and the next generation of farmers are just a few of the subjects of the photos readers share with Farmers Weekly.
We enjoy looking at all your pictures – they capture rural life across the nation and through the seasons in all its many guises.
In fact, we liked them so much and were so keen to showcase your photographic endeavours that we created a special slot for it online and in the magazine – Farmlife Framed.
