After being a finalist for three consecutive years, we were finally named the winners of the ‘Farm Shop of the Year’ category at the Butcher’s Shop of the Year Awards 2019!
The annual awards, hosted by Meat Trades Journal, celebrates the best of the UK’s butchery industry and this year Essington Farm was crowned the overall winner of the ‘Farm Shop of the Year’ award. Thirteen awards were presented during the glittering ceremony in front of an audience of 200 guests at Hilton London Bankside.
Judges praised Essington Farm and our staff highly, and commented: “Animal welfare and low food miles on top of superb presentation of a wide range of top-quality products makes this an outstanding farm shop. The farm specialises in its own pigs and special offers abound.”
This is a highly prestigious, national award which we have found ourselves in the finalists category for three years running, so we were delighted to have been awarded the winner’s trophy! We thank all of our wonderful staff for their hard work and commitment over the last year, and we are so proud of their achievements which have been rightfully recognised for this UK award. It is great to see our staff recognised for the wonderful, personal service and excellent value they offer.
