Women in Agriculture, Borders: Motivate and Inspire


Stepping out of your comfort zone, trying something new & making changes can be tough.

Annabel Hamilton, from Bee Edge farm near Coldingham has forged a successful career in farm management, overseeing the arable operations of large businesses in both Lincolnshire & Northumberland.

Since returning home in June 2020 to her native Berwickshire coast, Annabel has used her progressive mind set to create St Abbs first pick your own pumpkin patch, along with beginning the succession process on the family’s mixed farm. Annabel is also a strong advocate for women in agriculture and has recently found social media stardom, through her regular tweets on Farmers of the UK.

Despite her success in the industry, Annabel admits that forging a career in agriculture can often be a daunting and intimidating place for women, but believes strongly that with the correct mind-set anything is possible.
