Awards

Over the years we have continued to grow, develop and expand the business in an attempt to always be better than we were yesterday. We are always striving to improve and work together to provide our customers and community with the best shopping experience with real local food.

Our proudest accolade to date is the Farmers 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. This really proves that we truly do believe in local food and grow as much as we can on our farm.

Back in 2008 we were awarded Farm Retailer of the Year by FARMA (National Farmers' Retail & Markets Association). Farndon Fields has changed quite a bit since then and we are proud to say that the Farmer's Kitchen has been awarded the FARMA Farm Restaurant of the Year Award 2016! We're so proud of all our team who work so hard everyday cooking great homemade food and welcoming all our customers with fantastic service. We're really chuffed the Farmer's Kitchen has been recognised by FARMA after only opening our extension in July 2015. Well done team!
