We had an amazing evening at the Western Daily Press Food and Farming Awards.
The award for Outstanding Contribution to Farming went to our very own John Thatcher for all the tireless effort he has put into developing our orchards over many years. The judges said, “His relentless work to improve the apple “bloodstock” has made him one of the most famous and respected names in the industry. Now in his 70s, he remains a firm contributor to the local community while still a fierce ambassador for the industry as a whole.”
Also presented to us were the awards for Best Drinks Producer, and Food and Drink Business of the Year. A huge thank you to everyone!
Congratulations to all the evening’s finalists, including The Greenbank, in Easton, Bristol, who won Best Pub. We were very pleased to sponsor this category.
