The RSPB Telegraph Nature of Farming Award is now closed and unfortunately won’t be running in 2014.

For many years, the award promoted the positive work of farmers helping nature thrive on their land.

Whilst the award itself has closed, the RSPB believes such heroes should continue to be championed. We’ll continue working with farmers, campaigning for a countryside richer in nature and promoting these nature heroes – we need more of them in the future.
