Drewton’s Farm Shop named ‘Best Retailer of Local Produce’


Published: 23/09/2015

Drewton’s Farm Shop was named ‘Best Retailer of Local Produce’ at the East Yorkshire Local Food Network (EYLFN) Awards last night.


Since it was launched almost five years ago, the popular farm shop near South Cave has established a strong reputation for selling and serving fresh, quality, seasonal, locally-sourced and ethically-produced food and drink. More than 80 per cent of goods are locally-sourced, with just a few items, such as wine and olives, coming from carefully selected suppliers further afield.


Katie Taylor, who owns and runs the business, said: “We’re absolutely passionate about local, seasonal produce, so we’re absolutely thrilled to win this award. Our commitment to local food and drink underpins every aspect of the way we run the business and it’s fantastic that the judging panel has recognised this.”


Katie has even created her own ‘Food Map of Yorkshire’ to show customers where her network of more than 250 Yorkshire-based farmers, growers and suppliers are based. Meat is sourced from Yorkshire farms and prepared in-house by the farm shop’s team of butchers, who make their own sausages, burgers and other products, as well as preparing cuts of meat to customers’ requirements. Award-winning pies and sausage rolls are handmade (rather than machine made) by Katie’s team of chefs, and sold on the delicatessen counter alongside a range of carefully selected products from other Yorkshire-based food producers. The extensive, growing range of Drewton’s Farm Shop-branded goods is made with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients, as are the range of homemade frozen ready meals.


Clear labelling is used to highlight gluten and allergen-free products, alongside Katie’s own ‘Made in Yorkshire’ branding, ensuring that customers can make informed decisions about what they buy.
