Two judges will have two hours on your farm, looking at and discussing your business. Subsequently they will provide a report on your business noting your strengths and constructive criticism. The reports are confidential.  The judging will take place on Tuesday 6th June 2023 and Wednesday 7th June 2023.

Entry is free so what have you got to lose?

Previous competitors have said that 'one good idea makes it worthwhile' and we encourage the acreage not to discourage competitors we are not looking at size but the management of the business in question.

The results will appear on the  IAgrM Somersest branch website www.somersetcma.co.uk and will be announced over the summer. Awards will be presented for the first three places in each class at our Annual Dinner. The 1st place in each class will also receive 2 free tickets to the Annual Dinner on Thursday 23rd November 2023.
