Winner: Rumwell Farm Shop
Judges said: Rumwell Farm Shop makes 50 plus jams, chutneys and marmalades using fruit and vegetables from the shop, its beef and pork is reared on the family farm, it cures its own bacon and it makes its sausages and burgers. Freshly baked cakes, pudding and pies are also on offer. Everywhere you look there is a tribute to Somerset produce.
Highly commended: Pyne’s of Somerset
With plenty of South West produce on offer and some of the friendliest staff you could meet, this smart looking farm shop stocks a great range of produce.
In addition, the judge commented that its scotch egg was ‘the best’ she has ever tasted.
Highly commended: Rosie’s Larder in Wellington
This shop is a little treasure trove of fabulous things. Everywhere you look there is something interesting or quirky. As well as a great range of food products, this shop offers a friendly stop off for refreshment and a host of great goodies for the way home.
