2023 Young Farmer of The Year Award

A Rising Star In Agriculture

Exploring the Journey of Bizza Walters: KADAS Young Farmer of the Year 2023

Bizza Walters' recognition as the Young Farmer of the Year 2023 is a testament to her outstanding contributions to British agriculture and her unwavering support for young people within the industry. Her exemplary involvement with the NFU, influential presence on Instagram, and courageous leap into solo farming are just some facets of her remarkable journey.

Bizza's story begins amidst the rolling hills of her family's farm, where she was immersed in the rhythms of rural life from a young age. Her deep-rooted connection to agriculture led her to pursue academic endeavours at Henley High and Bromsgrove School before furthering her education at the Royal Agricultural University (RAU), where she studied Applied Farm Management. Here, she honed her skills and acquired the knowledge necessary to navigate the complexities of modern farming practices. 

Beyond the classroom, Bizza's passion for agriculture extended into advocacy and community engagement. Her participation in the NFU Student and Young Farmer Ambassador Programme in 2022 allowed her to amplify the voices of her peers and champion the interests of farmers nationwide. 

Venturing into solo farming, Bizza embarked on a journey marked by innovation and sustainability. Establishing her own rare breed sheep flock of Greyface Dartmoors, she demonstrated a commitment to quality breeding and responsible land stewardship, setting new standards of excellence with each lambing season.

At the heart of the Young Farmers' Club (YFC) community, Bizza's leadership and enthusiasm have made a lasting impact. From chairing the Wythall YFC to representing the club at prestigious events, she fosters camaraderie and excellence. Her adept use of social media, particularly on Instagram (@bizza.walters), has garnered a significant following, allowing her to bridge the gap between farmers and consumers and promote agricultural awareness.

Reflecting on Bizza's remarkable journey, it becomes clear that her impact on the agricultural landscape is significant. With each accolade and achievement, she paves the way for a brighter, more sustainable future for farming. As we look ahead, we eagerly anticipate the next chapter in her extraordinary story—a story fuelled by passion, perseverance, and a deep-seated love for the land.
