On Tuesday 23rd October, Katy and Pip swapped their muddy jeans and wellies for dresses and heels and headed off to the Rural Business Awards held at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking. The farm had been nominated within the category of ‘Outstanding Rural Diversification Project’ for the South East region and was up against some tough competition!
After a delicious 3-course dinner and wine made at Denbies Vineyard, the awards ceremony began. Our category was second to be announced and we were completely shocked and delighted to be voted Runners Up in our category!! Congratulations to The Little Grey Sheep who won, it was very well deserved!
We are thrilled to have been recognised for our hard work in diversifying the farm in recent years. In a turbulent time for farmers and retailers, it is essential we continue to grow and develop in order to maintain our business and engage our customers. Thank you to everyone who has supported us, please do continue to buy local and support small rural businesses!
