We were delighted to discover that Adam Henson, BBC Countryfile presenter and respected farmer, was awarded the Farming Champion of the Year title at last night’s Farmers Weekly Awards.

Anyone who reads this blog will know that Adam was good enough to chair the afternoon discussion session at our National Organic Cereals 2010 event this year and did a superb job.

Though not an organic farmer himself, Adam spent the whole day with us and it was apparent that he was interested in and very respectful of his organic peers. We can confirm he’s also a thoroughly nice chap!

Funnily enough, this support for a variety of key farming events throughout the year was highlighted by the judges in the citation that went with Adam’s award, which you can read in full here on the Farmers Weekly website. His work on Countryfile to demonstrate the realities of farming to a prime time audience has been noted and appreciated across the agricultural community.

We would like to pass on our own congratulations to Adam. This is a thoroughly deserved accolade.
