We’re really proud to have won the “Best Contribution towards Creating a Sustainable Food Economy – From Nature to Plate” category at the Cornwall Sustainability Awards, organised by Cornwall Council and the Environment Agency.

We faced stiff competition and would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in the farm, from our workers and volunteers to our customers and the community. Without your support, the farm would not be possible.

Big congratulations to the joint winners: Devon and Cornwall Food Association, too.
