We are always striving to improve and work together to provide our customers and community with the best shopping experience with real local food. As part of this progress we have won several awards over the past 15 years.

An award highlight was theFarmers Weekly Local Food Farmer of the Year which Kevin won in 2012. This is a national award run by the Farmers Weekly Magazine which is judged by fellow farmers and food industry experts.
