The aim is to highlight our highly driven and passionate local businesses like Foxholes Farm Shop, to generate the coverage they deserve. Winning this Award would help build them as a destination, putting them on the map both regionally and nationally and in turn, bringing interest to East Hertfordshire.
Nigel Barden, chair of judges and BBC Radio 2 Gastronome commented “There are some very focused, driven and talented food retailers in Britain, who deserve to be nourished and encouraged. It’s marvellous that these awards can bring them to a much wider attention. The 2015 Awards revealed some truly brilliant winners, many of whom source produce locally and it’s marvellous to see that there’s a good spread of outstanding retailers in both urban and rural settings. The British food and drink offer has never been better, as richly illustrated by the Farm Shop & Deli Awards. ”
Catherine Smith, Managing Partner at Foxholes Farm Shop, said “We have our customer at the heart of everything we do at Foxholes. We rely heavily on customer feedback and word of mouth recommendations so we need to ensure that our products and service is delivering 100% satisfaction.
