Butterfly Conservation joined a panel of judges to whittle down entries to the RSPB Telegraph Nature of Farming Award. The final four left in the running to win this annual competition have now been named. It is down to the public to choose the most wildlife-friendly farmer of 2011.
The Nature of Farming Award celebrates the fantastic work farmers are doing for wildlife. The Telegraph, Plantlife and Butterfly Conservation were all enlisted to help find the top farms for wildlife across the UK. The finalists have demonstrated their commitment to proving it can be finacially viable to look after wildlife on a farm. They are all fantastic ambassadors for wildlife in the farming community.
You have until 31 August 2011 to decide which farmer you think deserves the Nature of Farming Award.
Everyone who votes will be entered into a free draw to win a two-night break for two people at a luxury hotel. The prize includes a full English breakfast each morning and a three-course dinner each evening. The winner can choose from one of Hallmark Hotels' fabulous boutique hotels in Bournemouth, Hull, Carlisle, Derby or Gloucester.
View the finalists and vote now.
The results of the award will be announced in mid-September.
