About the awards
This year the Farmers Weekly Awards night will take place on 4 October at the historic Grosvenor House Hotel – a five star venue on London’s Park Lane – and as always it promises to be a star-studded occasion.
In the past the awards have been hosted by the likes of Matt Baker, Julia Bradbury, Kate Humble, Fiona Bruce and Claire Balding. Celebrity farmer Jimmy Doherty and Countryfile’s Adam Henson have both been on to the Farmers Weekly awards stage to collect trophies.
