Isle Of Wight Shepherdess Joins NFU Student And Young Farmer Ambassador Programme

A young farmer from the Isle of Wight has been named an NFU South representative on the new Student Young Farmer Ambassadors 2024 cohort.

Sian Grove, 26, is a first generation, part-time shepherdess.

Despite being new to the industry, Sian is fast becoming known within the Island's farming community for her work as Secretary of the Royal Isle of Wight County Show and Gilten Market.

In addition, she is Chairwoman of the IW Young Farmers Club.

Sian joins Sophia Ashe as one of the two representatives for the South in the 2024 cohort.

The two young farmers fought off a number of quality candidates to gain a position on the industry’s coveted programme which will see them attend events at parliament, learn more about the industry from peers and undertake training days.

With a forthcoming UK General Election and an ongoing need to keep food and farming front of mind amid a busy political and media agenda, the Student & Young Farmer ambassadors will play a vital role in telling the story and value of British farming to the public.
