The Farm Retail Association (formerly FARMA) has announced that Morris’s Farm Shop  has been shortlisted as a finalist in the annual awards celebrating the best farm shops, farm cafés and restaurants, farmers’ markets, Pick Your Own farms and trade suppliers. They are the only awards that are judged by fellow farm retailers.

David Leon, from the Farm Retail Association said, “the range and standard of award entries demonstrates the exceptional quality of the produce and customer service customers can expect from our members. Savvy shoppers know that by buying directly from their local farm shop, farmers’ market and Pick Your Own farm they are getting the very best of local food and service.”

“The judges had a difficult job and Morris’s Farm Shop should be justly proud to be named as one of the finalists. They have now gone forward to the second round of the award assessments which includes a secret shopper visit and a further round of judging to determine the overall winner in each category.”

 Morris’s Farm Shop Manager, Helen Morris commented, “Since opening in November 2017 our Farm Shop has gone from strength to strength with many customers now visiting us in preference to trekking off automatically to the supermarkets. We are very proud of what we offer. Food quality and provenance is important to us. We want to make sure that we keep our food ranges local and with as few food miles as possible.”

“We pride ourselves on offering an excellent customer friendly service and all our team here at Morris’s have worked very hard to make the Farm Shop a success. We’d like to thank all our customers for their support in our first year with the Farm Shop.”

The winners will be announced at the Awards dinner as part of the Farm Retail Association’s Annual Conference and Trade Show on Tuesday 26th February in Oxford.
