Yellow mug with face, with a wig on topLast month we ran a competition to win a copy of ‘Would You Marry a Farmer?’ by Lorna Sixsmith and asked people to send in their favourite agricultural joke to be in with a chance of winning.

Following an extensive process of sharing the jokes around the office and laughing and groaning in equal measure, we can announce that the winning joke from is:

A man is driving down a country road, when he spots a farmer standing in the middle of a huge field of grass. He pulls the car over to the side of the road and notices that the farmer is just standing there, doing nothing, looking at nothing. The man gets out of the car, walks all the way out to the farmer and asks him, “Ah excuse me mister, but what are you doing?”

The farmer replies, “I’m trying to win a Nobel Prize.”

“How?” asks the man, puzzled.

“Well, I heard they give the Nobel Prize . . . to people who are out standing in their field.”

Congratulations to Barbara from Northamptonshire, who wins the copy of the book.
