The Guild's Netherthorpe Award was presented to Essex farmer and Guild member Guy Smith for his informative and often controversial writing, including a regular Smith's Soapbox column in Arable Farming and, in particular, his efforts to promote information and positive messages on agriculture.
Guy's Food, Farm & Countryside project has sent out 300,000 copies of a 28-page booklet aimed at communicating key facts about the British agricultural industry to the general public.
