Don’t be so British!

As is the British way, many of the UK’s young, innovative farmers and growers have been too humble to put themselves forward for the YOFGY award. However, we believe their hard work deserves to be recognised. With this in mind, we have extended the application deadline to 10th May 2024, and we are reaching out to mentors, consultants and advisors to shine a light on the young people who are too modest to shout about the wonderful things they are doing.
