Gloucestershire’s Silver Pintail Award showcases the long term commitment to wildlife conservation and sustainable farming shown by many farmers across the county. Each year the competition has a theme, this allows different farms to enter in different years, depending on their strengths.

In 2019 the Silver Pintail competition will depart from the usual approach of having a specific theme and have a more general theme of "showcase your farm". Each farm will be judged against its potential to deliver for the environment, including soils, wildlife and landscape issues.

How to enter?

We encourage you to nominate yourself or you can put forward someone else. If you are a farmer that fancies your chances, or you know of a worthy farm that demonstrates good conservation practices alongside farming, then don’t wait…

If you have any questions please contact us on [email protected] or call the Gloucestershire Office on 01666 503668 or the FWAG SW office 01823 660684 for more details on any aspect of the Silver Pintail Award.
