Hearty congratulations to the team at the Welbeck Farm Shop for their FARMA award for Best On Farm Butchery 2013. The winners were announced at the awards ceremony held on the 12th of February 2013 at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate. The awards were presented by celebrity chef and FARMA patron, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. The FARMA awards recognise excellence across the farm retail sector. They look for people and businesses that exhibit a passion for local food, outstanding examples of customer service and experience, solid business performance, skillful staff management, effective marketing and PR, and a commitment to their local community and the environment. The Welbeck Farm Shop were short listed from over 300 entries for the ‘Best on Farm Butchery’ award and were also finalists in the ‘Own and Local’ category. The FARMA award entries are judged by a panel of industry peers and retail experts including assessments from independent mystery shoppers. Award judge, Andy Jeffery, commented: “ A phenomenal team of butchers - they could turn a vegetarian into a carnivore in ten minutes!”

For centuries, Welbeck has been a place of constant evolution. In 2005, a new chapter in Welbeck’s history was to begin when the MOD, who had used Welbeck Abbey along with other Estate buildings as a Sixth Form College since 1954, made the decision to leave. With the MOD’s departure came David Hibbert and the formation of the Welbeck Abbey Maintenance team.
