This year is proving to be one of our best yet! Following our success at the Farmers Weekly Awards, we are very excited to announce that John Pitts, our Managing Director, has been announced as a silver award winner in this year's British Farming Awards.
Nominated by our customer The Organic Milk Suppliers Cooperative (OMSCo), John was awarded silver in the Diversification Innovator of the Year category for large businesses at the awards night which took place on Thursday 15th October at the Chateau Impney Hotel in Worcestershire.
The Woodhorn Group was one of five farms shortlisted in the category which celebrates large farm businesses that no longer just operate behind a closed gate, but look to add value to their enterprise. Judges were looking for individuals who have looked outside the box to secure a future for their business, demonstrating vision, creative flair and ambition.
John was recognised in the awards for developing his family’s farming business from a dairy and arable farm to encompass a fully-fledged waste management business.
Now in its third year, The British Farming Awards is organised by Briefing Media Agriculture, and aims to reward the extraordinary breed of farmers who have made their business a success through sheer determination, grit and foresight.
