On 9th August 2019, we'll be marking 24 Hours in Farming with our Farm24 event. The annual event aims to showcase the brilliant work done by British land and livestock farmers all day, everyday. 

On this page, you'll find plenty of videos, inspiration and ideas so you can learn all about what goes into making British farming a success.

If you're a British farmer and would like to get involved, we'd love to see a glimpse into your daily farming life - share snapshots or video posts with us on social media using #Farm24. 



Our Jersey Potatoes

From being prepped in potato boxes in October, planted in January and harvested in April, you can watch how our Jersey potatoes get from field to store in the video below. 



Discover more about the different farming sectors we work with

From cows and pigs right through to strawberries and bedding plants, we work with a wide variety of farming sectors.

In the videos below, you can follow the journey of the bedding plants we sell from seedling to store, as well as learn about where our British strawberries come from. You can also get a glimpse into life on the farm with Simon Watchorn, a Pig Farmer at Earsham Park Farm and Paul Coates at Barrackend Farm.

Finding local foodmakers

At Morrisons, we want to feed the nation with a bigger portion of food and drink that is sourced from local suppliers. That’s why we've started a fresh search for a new crop of foodmakers - who we hope can grow with Morrisons and maybe even become household names in their own right.
