Drewton’s Farm Shop named ‘Best Independent Retailer’ in Yorkshire

Published: 26/09/2013

Drewton's Farm Shop in East Yorkshire was named 'Best Independent Retailer' at last night's Deliciously Yorkshire awards 2013.

Drewton's, which is based near South Cave in East Yorkshire, won the title after beating off fierce competition from three other well known farm shops from across the county.

The Deliciously Yorkshire Awards are an annual celebration of all that's great about Yorkshire's food and drink offering, and aim to recognise those businesses and individuals who achieve the very highest standards in their field.

This year, an exceptionally high number of entries were received, making the judging process tougher than ever. Those entrants that made the shortlist came under the scrutiny of mystery shoppers and diners.

A delighted Katie Taylor, who owns and runs Drewton's Farm Shop and is well known for championing local food producers, said: "We've won a whole series of awards during the last 12 months - locally, regionally and nationally - but this is definitely the icing on the cake. Yorkshire has some amazing farm shops and to be recognised as the very best is absolutely thrilling for me and my entire team here at Drewton's.

"Since we first launched the business almost three years ago, we've worked hard to champion and support our local farmers, growers and suppliers. We've created our own food map of Yorkshire so that customers know exactly where the produce they're buying and eating here comes from. We think it's important to share the entire story about the journey that our food makes from farm to fork as it enables customers to make informed decisions about what they're buying We're very proud to be part of Yorkshire's wonderful food and drink scene."

Katie added: "York Railway Museum was a spectacular setting for the awards evening, with 300 people seated at tables on the platforms between the royal trains. The food was delicious, highlighting many of our local producers, and some of the food and drink shortlisted for the awards."
