On Monday 25th April specialist retailers, suppliers and the Awards judges came together in person at Farm Shop & Deli Show held at NEC Birmingham to celebrate the very best of the sector as the Regional Winners were announced to a packed audience.
For 2022, the Farm Shop & Deli Retailer Awards recognised specialist retailers who are doing their part to create a better world through sustainable initiatives, whilst supporting their customers, communities and suppliers.
Town End Farm Shop in Malhamdale, Skipton, won the accolade of best in region for Yorkshire and the North East, read some of the judges’ comments below:
“Phew, I almost had to lie down after reading that list of hugely and highly commendable aspects to this small yet super dynamic farm shop out near Malham. He certainly does have his finger on the button here and quietly, seemingly just gets on with the job in hand and I found his list of eco-credentials not just extensive but also in areas that I had certainly not thought of before which was a real standout for me.”
“I really like this entry, lots of what I want to see in an entry. Supporting other businesses, making charcuterie on site, good, innovative sustainable solutions, investment in staff, community support, local producers name-checked.”
