About the Awards
Now in their 8th year, The Yorkshire Post is proud to once again, recognise and celebrate a cross section of businesses, farms, organisations and individuals that have excelled in the rural community in Yorkshire.
The overriding emphasis of this year’s Yorkshire Post Rural Awards is centred on what is currently happening on farms, rural businesses and with rural events (in the past 12-18 months). This, however, does not restrict any farm or business from being nominated for their work over many years.
These awards are meant to give recognition to the work on farms, in businesses or through countryside events regardless of a farm, business or event’s size.
You can nominate your own farm or business, your own local show or event; you can nominate someone who you admire from afar; you can nominate a neighbour, friend or family member.
We want these awards to be the most open awards ever!
This year we have some fantastic new categories including Rare Breed Farm of the Year and Rural Tourism Award.
Entries to the awards will close on July 26, 2024 and winners will be announced at the glitzy Awards Ceremony on September 26, 2024.
