British farm life

Lola Bellouere, Manchester

From fuzzy highland cattle to newborn lambs, and farmers cradling their newest additions, to children playfully chasing after livestock, Certas Energy challenged people in the UK to submit their best farm life photographs.

The competition received more than 130 entries from all over the country, depicting modern agriculture and farm life for families living in rural areas across the UK.

The winner was Lola Bellouere from Manchester, who submitted a photograph of her first born lambs at spring.  The photo was taken at Oddendale Farm in the Lake District next door to her grandmother’s house.

Runners up included everything from nurturing sheepdogs looking after their owner’s newest arrivals, to an array of highland cows caught on camera and farmers showing off their prized vintage tractors, all of which can be found in the online gallery on Certas Energy’s website.

Angus Blundell, Director of Marketing at Certas Energy, said: “Certas Energy provides fuel to customers in some of the most rural areas in the UK, including farms. We decided to run this competition to highlight the importance of British agriculture and showcase the beauty of the British countryside in our new online gallery.

“Spring is a busy time for the farming industry and we wanted to run this competition in celebration of all their hard efforts. We were very impressed with all the entries we received and it was really difficult to pick an overall winner, but we feel that Lola really captured the essence of what British farm life is all about.”
