AWARD WINNING FARM SHOP!

Wow! We’ve been announced as winners of the South East in the Countryside Alliance Awards for local food 2017. Utterly delighted and thank you for all the nominations from you all that helped us reach the qualifying stages. We have been jointly honoured with Quex Barn in Kent as they couldn’t split us and we are the only category with 2 winners, a very tough competition. 11000 entries down to the last 7! Off up to the House of Lords  for the winners reception next month where we were so inspired a couple of years ago – not forgetting the fabulous canapes of course!

Well this is the thing – it’s sublimely good!

Watch out watch out there are piglets about!

Watch out watch out there are piglets about!

Bringing mayhem and mischief to the farm in the cutest possible way, our latest litters of piglets have arrived! One litter of 3 and one of 11!! With more to follow we anticipate a lot of interest in those of you stopping at the egg box as these little munchkins are very nosey!

Nativity at Blue Tin

Nativity at Blue Tin

You may be amused to hear of our own little nativity here on the farm this Christmas just gone with the birth of a very unexpected calf on Christmas morning.

A little girl now named Santa who will definitely never be destined for the abattoir.

Dexter beef

What is even more amusing is how Dozer, our (we’re beginning to discover) very amorous bull managed that one – or to be more specific… when! With two more calves expected in March (although based on Santa they could be any time at all), he seems to have discovered the fine art of jumping his significant tonnage over the fences!

Countryside Alliance Awards finalists!!! Thanks to all of you!

Countryside Alliance Awards finalists!!! Thanks to all of you!

Blue Tin Produce have been selected as finalists in the 2015 Countryside Alliance Awards, otherwise known as the Rural Oscars.

Countryside Alliance Awards

We will be competing in the Local Food category against businesses from across England and Wales for the Champions title.

Wow! So thank you to our wonderful customer who nominated us for this prestigious award and to all of you for voting us into the finals!

The awards were set up 11 years ago to offer a voice and a platform to rural businesses and are a true celebration of the British countryside. Finalists across the 4 categories have been drawn from thousands of nominations and the awards are nomination-led so our inclusion speaks very highly of the loyalty of our customers. Winners will be announced in April 2016.

Reception at the Houses of Parliament

The winners will be announced at a reception at the Houses of Parliament in Westminster in April. To see more about the other potential winners in our category, please go to www.countryside-alliance.org or on Twitter @CAAwards #RuralOscars.

Very many thanks to all of you!

Perhaps we should add #FarmerInASuit, #BumpkinsInTheBigSmoke etc etc…. but really, THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH and we’ll keep you posted!
