Emma, who lives in Thursby, picked up the Agricultural Student/ Rural Skills Award at the inaugural Cumbria Farmer Awards 2021.

She is part of Cartmell Shepherd Solicitors’ Agriculture and Estates team. Judges praised how Emma used her farming background and knowledge of the agricultural industry to give an excellent insight into her work as a solicitor specialising in agricultural law.

Emma also helps out on the family farm and is an active member of her local Young Farmers’ club. Around 220 farmers, industry professionals and local dignitaries attended the Cumbria Farmer Awards which were held at The Greenhill Hotel, near Wigton.
