Farming is in Hannah's blood as her grandparents, Jack and Joan Ormerod, own a farm in Clowbridge where Hannah and Joe work their herd from.

Hannah attended the former Habergham High School before going to Myerscough Agricultural College and Harper Adams University in Shropshire.

The couple recently won the reserve inter-breed champion at the Derbyshire County Show and next weekend they will be competing at Royal Lancashire Show.

And the weekend after will be special for the whole family as they will be attending the National Limousin 50th anniversary show in Carlisle.
