A £50 giveaway in collaboration with Red Tractor.
Red Tractor Week 2017 (11th – 17th September) will celebrate great food, great farming and quality food you can trust. Supported by BBC Countryfile presenter and Red Tractor farmer Adam Henson, the week hopes to encourage people to cook their own recipes using Red Tractor products and post them online using #Trustthetractor.
Red Tractor is creating an online recipe book of real people’s favourite Red Tractor meals. Each day will focus on a different key British ingredient and will be supported by a daily competition as well as real life stories and videos from the Red Tractor farmers who bring us our food.
People can take part via social media (on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #Trustthetractor) and on the Red Tractor website.

Red Tractor Farmer and BBC Countryfile presenter, Adam Henson said;
“What a fabulous week to get out cooking and supporting our wonderful British Red Tractor farmers. As a Red Tractor farmer myself this is one of my favourite times of the year when the harvest is safely gathered and we can really enjoy the fruits of our labour with so much great food in season.
“This year has been a patchy harvest with mixed quality in wheat and barley, however overall it has been a positive result. With quality being key, it is more important than ever that the crop is looked after, which is why good standards are important.”
Every stage of the journey your Red Tractor food makes is checked. Rigorous independent systems ensure that food holding the Red Tractor logo can be traced right back to original British farms.
The week hopes to draw people’s attention to the great standards that go into food and drink with the Red Tractor label. Red Tractor ensures people can trust the food they eat. It is the largest food standards scheme in the UK, covering; animal welfare, food safety, traceability and environmental protection.
About Red Tractor Assurance Food Standards
The Red Tractor is a mark of quality food you can trust. Red Tractor standards mean they know the farms our food has come from. Red Tractor farmers care about their animals and are proud of the crops they grow. Red Tractor farmers care for our countryside. The flag in the Red Tractor logo tells you where your food comes from.
Red Tractor food and drink has been responsibly produced to some of the most comprehensive and respected standards in the world. All stages are regularly checked by independent experts. All the major UK supermarkets use their standards as the basis for their UK sourced food (and most choose to display the Red Tractor logo to confirm product credentials with their customers).
