South West Farmer of the Year 2023 Awards

On Thursday 9th November our Head Grower, Hugh, attended the awards ceremony at Somerset Cricket Ground in Taunton, as a finalist in the Sustainability Champion section. This award was won by Bill and Suzanne Harper of Trepoyle Farm, for their work in fermenting cattle dung using Bokashi, and managing their meadows to reduce run-off into the river. Sadly, this meant that Hugh came away from the night empty handed, but had represented Bosavern Community Farm and healped spread the message of community agriculture to a wider audience.
