Welbeck Farm Shop - FARMA Awards 2014 Finalists

The Welbeck Farm Shop are proud finalists in the 2014 UK Farm Retail Awards from FARMA (The National Farmer’s Retail and Markets’ Association) in both the ‘Farm Retailer of the Year’ and ‘Own & Local’ award categories.

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 the local community and the environment. The FARMA award entries are judged by a panel of industry peers and retail experts including assessments from independent mystery shoppers. The FARMA Award 2014 winners will be revealed at an awards dinner on the 25th of February 2014.

The Welbeck Farm Shop were one of six UK shops short listed in the ‘Farm Retailer of the Year’ award category and one of four UK shops short listed in the ‘Own & Local’ award category.  Earlier this year, the Welbeck Farm Shop were thrilled to win the ‘Best on Farm Butchery’ award in the FARMA Awards 2013. FARMA Award 2013 judge, Andy Jeffery, commented: “ A phenomenal team of butchers - they could turn a vegetarian into a carnivore in ten minutes!” Well done to Michael Boyle and his fabulous Welbeck Farm Shop team!
