Wayland Farms Win at The National Pig Awards

​​We are proud to announce that Wayland Farms, part of our agricultural division, has won three awards in the National Pig Awards this year, in the categories of:

  • Pig Producer of the Year 
  • Outdoor Pig Producer of the Year (for the second year running)
  • ‘Special Achievement of the Year Award’ to Lee Thompson

For Pig Producer of the Year, the judges said: ‘Wayland Farms is one of the country’s most impressive and progressive pig businesses. It is very much a holistic approach supplying high quality products to Cranswick, with a strong focus on pig health and welfare and environmental enhancement.’

For Outdoor Pig Producer of the Year, we were commended for a series of innovative projects such as full use of a carbon footprinting tool and monitoring water use. 

The Special Achievement of the Year Award was given to Wayland Fieldsperson Lee Thompson, for ‘Flat White Chats’, which is a podcast and website which he set up himself and which has done a great deal to raise the profile of mental health in the agriculture sector.

Well done to Lee and all the team at Wayland.
