A farm shop has been given the top accolade at the 2012 Garden Centre Association (GCA) Awards
The Apple Tree Farm Shop, at Brimsmore Gardens in Yeovil, was awarded the title of Best Food Hall in Wales and the West.
Cath Collins, manager of The Apple Tree Farm Shop, said, “I was bouncing off the walls when I heard we had won. We've worked really hard for the last five years – listening to what our customers want, going out to meet local producers and finding the very best food and drink from our area.
“We also talk to our customers about local producers and get the producers into the farm shop, and also adding a range of gluten-free foods which we are constantly asked for, so all this work has paid off.
“It's only recently that the farm shop has been included in the GCA audit so we really are thrilled. I'm really grateful to all the local producers who have supported all our tasting events, and of course to the whole team at the garden centre,” she added.
