Awards open for the best in farming

The Northern Farmer Awards 2016 have been launched. Jenny Thompson, The Northern Farmer publisher, said: 'Since its launch three years ago, the awards are now a firm fixture in the northern farming community's calendar. I meet lots of innovative and hardworking farmers and their families who are passionate and determined to make their businesses grow.' She welcomed two new sponsors this year – Savills as sponsor of the Farm Manager category, and Santander, which is sponsoring the Sheep Farmer award. Santander explained: 'We understand that agricultural businesses need long-term support from their bankers and, as such, we are committed to offering the stability of an ongoing banking relationship. We have an excellent pedigree in this sector, supporting agriculture in many countries across the world. We take the business ambitions of our customers seriously and spend time understanding their business.'
