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.
