George Dunn

Kicking off the evening was the Outstanding Contribution to British Agriculture, which was awarded to the Tenant Farmers Association Chief Executive George Dunn.

Mr Dunn has worked his way up the ranks to become a much admired and respected leader who represents farmers and growers who do not own the land they operate in England and Wales since it was founded in 1981.

In his role he has lobbied and tirelessly campaigned on the major issues affecting farmers and has been instrumental in advising the government on how schemes can better support the tenanted sector as farming moves forward in the future.

Mr Dunn is a member of numerous organisations including the Royal Countryside Fund Farm Advisory Group, Farming Community Network, serving as chairman of the charity and the National Trust’s Rural Enterprise Panel.
