The Suffolk Agricultural Association (SAA), in partnership with sponsors Ashtons Legal solicitors, is calling for entries for its prestigious Best Alternative Land Enterprise (BALE) award, now in its 27th year.
Open to all farm businesses throughout Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex with buildings or land on their farms, this annual award recognises and rewards imaginative and commercial alternative non-agricultural uses of this land and the positive effects the businesses have on the local economy. The first prize is the Ashtons Legal Challenge Cup and £2,000 of legal advice (which is redeemable with any Ashtons team for either commercial or individual legal advice), the second prize winner and the Best Newcomer both receive £1,000 of legal advice and there is a £500 legal health check for the Best “Green Practice,” all of whom will be announced during the Annual SAA Agricultural Awards dinner to be held at Trinity Park on Thursday, October 18. All entrants receive two complimentary tickets to attend the event.
