The Farm Retail Association (formerly FARMA) has announced the list of finalists in the annual awards celebrating the best farm shops, farm cafés and restaurants, farmers’ markets, Pick Your Own farms and trade suppliers. They are the only awards that are judged by fellow farm retailers.
David Leon, from the Farm Retail Association said,
“The range and standard of award entries demonstrates the exceptional quality of the produce and customer service customers can expect from our members. Savvy shoppers know that by buying directly from their local farm shop, farmers’ market and Pick Your Own farm they are getting the very best of local food and service.”
“The judges have carefully examined all the entries to produce the list of finalists who will now go forward to the second round which includes a secret shopper visit and a further round of judging to determine the overall winner in each category.”
The winners will be announced at the Awards dinner as part of the Farm Retail Association’s Annual Conference and Trade Show on Tuesday 26th February in Oxford.
