Regenerative Agriculture Showcase

The Farmer Scientist Network will be showcasing regenerative agricultural practices which support farmers in improving soil health and increasing biodiversity at the Great Yorkshire Show (12-15 July 2022). This includes:

‘A year in Regenerative Agriculture’ photography exhibition

Visitors will be able to see how regenerative agriculture is shaping farming methods for the future.

The exhibition follows Angus Gowthorpe, Future Farmer of Yorkshire, who farms 400 acres in the Vale of York with a mix of arable crops and grassland for his pedigree cattle herd. An advocate for farming sustainably, he focuses on direct drilling and growing cover crops to maintain the health of the soil across his arable land.

Photos have been taken by Simon Hill, HonFRPS, an award-winning professional editorial photographer living in Nidderdale, North Yorkshire. Named KODAK Professional Photographer of the Year, BIPP Professional Photographer of the Year, the winner of several categories in the National Photography Awards and the first British winner of the International Art Portrait Award. In January 2021, Simon was elected President of the Royal Photographic Society.
