FWAG SouthWest’s Farming & Wildlife Awards recognise commercial farms that have successfully combined food production with sustainability, environmental protection and wildlife gains.
The competitions are key items in delivering our charitable aims as they are a major opportunity to build strong relationships between farmers and the wider community, showcasing the wonderful conservation work many farmers carry out.
The Barn Owl Award is FWAG SW’s flagship award to celebrate the best of farmland conservation and positive environmental practices across the six counties of the South West region.
The Silver Lapwing is a prestigious national award, primarily sponsored by Waitrose alongside other partner organisations. The presentation is a showcase event that receives considerable national and local press coverage, reflecting its high profile in the agricultural calendar.
FWAG SouthWest currently run county based competitions in Cornwall, Devon, Gloucestershire, and we are re-launching the Somerset Otter for 2019.
