Epwell dairy farmers Iona and Chris Corbett picked up the 2015 Future of Farming Champion award last week through their tireless efforts to improve understanding of the industry.
Judges in the Bayer CropScience andFarming and Countryside Education awards commended the couple’s efforts across all ages and through a variety of activities.
Mr and Mrs Corbett have given school pupils an insight into the reality of life on a dairy farm and how science is used.
“Children see milking, feeding, calving, artificial insemination or testing,” said Mrs Corbett. “I believe the programme motivates them to look at farming as a career.”
