Mr Freeman - who has a wife Eleanor and two children and lives in South West Norfolk - has been on the campaign beat for more than three years and has been fighting issues such as saving post offices, improving transport links and protecting local pubs and shops.
He embarked on a 110-mile cycle ride around the constituency boundary to get to meet people and find out about the issues.
Mr Freeman spent five years in Westminster as parliamentary officer of the National Farmers Union.
He said: 'Politics has lost its way. A new generation of us faces an historic challenge: to inspire trust and hope in politics once again. I'm committed to doing all I can to speak up with a positive vision for Norfolk and Britain.'
