RASE Farm of the Future Award

New in 2023, the RASE Farm of the Future Award was established to promote and celebrate the trailblazers of agriculture in England, whose efforts are leading the way to establish agricultural systems which are producing nutritious food, benefiting the environment and are economically sustainable.

The award will celebrate an individual, farm business or organisation taking a pioneering approach to maintaining food production while responding to environmental challenges and ensuring business sustainability. Winners may be early adopters of new technologies or innovations, who are openly sharing their experience so others in the industry can learn from it.    

The first winners of the award were Paul and John Cherry, who were presented the award in recognition of how the Groundswell Event has become a ground-breaking initiative promoting regenerative agriculture and instilling confidence in many farmers to start their journey towards more sustainable farming systems. The ripple effect of this transfer of knowledge has been phenomenal.
