The National Farming for Nature Award  is now in its second year and aims to source and share stories of farmers across Ireland who are adjudged to be managing their land and livestock in a way that really benefits nature in their area. By celebrating these ‘Farming for Nature Ambassadors’ it is hoped to inform and inspire other farmers, and members of the public, to follow suit and do what they can for nature.

The key supporters of the 2019 awards are Bord Bia under the Origin Green programme.  A smaller contribution towards coordination has been received from the National Rural Network.  These awards are being organised on a mainly voluntary basis in order to share these positive and inspiring stories around nature .
