One of the joys of looking at the Farmers Weekly email inbox is seeing the brilliant pictures readers have sent to us.
They can be funny, they can be evocative and they can be heartfelt.
They provide a snapshot of readers’ lives – and we’ve created this slot, Farmlife Framed, so we can showcase some of them.

From the scenic and the serious to the fun and the funny, your pictures are a great insight into agriculture and rural living across the UK.

Jeff Aitchison sent us this picture of his dad, John, grabbing a few minutes relaxation on Fathers’ Day. John lives in Cambridgeshire, but was visiting Jeff in West Yorkshire for the weekend.
“By just doing a few little things, wildlife and farming can jog along in harmony,” says Heather Tanner of Earl Soham in Suffolk. “We have mown a path through the hay meadow along one of the hare tracks and made a gap onto the lawn through the hedge. We call it the #hareway and most days we see hares – they do love a sunrise and sunset. What it costs in labour and fuel is more than compensated by the joy of hares in full view.”
Robynne Casswell took this picture of Simon Casswell, an arable and sheep farmer in Corringham, Lincolnshire (and Mitch the dog). “What’s the saying about mad dogs and Englishman?” laughs Robynne.
Minnie the Jack Russell has a Sunday morning Browse. “She’s an avid reader of Farmers Weekly,” says Tom Parry from The Brecon Beacons.
Kate and Freddy Jenkinson from Stalmine in Lancashire shared this shot of one their dogs enjoying the sunshine.
Rough collie, Ben, “thoroughly enjoying himself during the haymaking this year”, according to owner Ashlene Troughton.
