Award winning Oakchurch Farm Shop
“We’re proud to support local!”
“It was great to hear that we’d won the Hereford Times Best Farm Shop Award for the second time in a row.” Said Oakchurch Farm Shop owner, Nick Price.
Antiques expert and TV personality, Kate Bliss, presented the Hereford Times Food & Farming Awards event via social media last week.
“The key to a good farm shop is not only the range of products and the layout but also the principles that it supports.” Said Kate.
“We were looking for the produce sold to be fresh and grown, picked or reared on the farm itself or from specialist producers in the local area. Often know as ‘The Harrods of Herefordshire’ the food hall at Oakchurch Farm Shop specialises in local food. It’s a culinary showcase for more then 90 local food and drink producers and for the ready-meals, sausage rolls, cakes and much more that’s all made on-site.”
Oakchurch Farm Shop have constantly enjoyed a phenomenally successful history for awards for their food.
Achieving eight new awards to add to their existing twelve Great Taste Wards just last year. One of which being a 3-star award, the highest you can get, which means the product was described by judges as extraordinarily tasty, for its Raspberry Sorbet.
Other tasty award winners from Oakchurch include Rhubarb Sorbet, Strawberry Ice Cream, Turkish Delight Ice Cream, Broccoli & Stilton Quiche, Chocolate Sponge, Butter Bean, Cheddar & Leek Pie and the Oakchurch farm ‘melt in the mouth’ Sirloin Steak.
“Absolutely delighted with the news about the Hereford Times Best Farm Shop Award.” Said Nick Price.
“We count ourselves to be so lucky to be in rural Herefordshire where great tasting food and drink is readily available and in great abundance, right here on our doorstep. The fertile Herefordshire soil makes such a difference to the quality and the flavour and we’re so proud to be able to support fellow local farmers, growers, producers and food & drink suppliers that we know and trust.”
Oakchurch Farm Shop is at Staunton-on-Wye, just 10 minutes from Hereford on the A438 Brecon Road.
