Two of our tenant farmers have been successfully recognised by the Trust for their brilliant produce.

" Every jar represents an awful lot of people’s hard work. And this award makes it all worthwhile. "

Pure Herefordshire Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil from Warren Farm on the Brockhampton Estate and Gooseberry Jam and Green Bean Chutney from Tanwood Products, also based on the Brockhampton Estate have both won Fine Farm produce awards several times over.

The annual awards celebrate the very best produce from the National Trust’s 1,500 tenant farmers and estates across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Products not only have to excel in the obligatory taste test, but entrants also have to pass a checklist of environmental standards to guarantee the quality and origin of ingredients alongside high standards of production.The winners are decided by a judging panel consisting of 10 food and drink experts.

" We can tell our customers exactly what field their rapeseed was grown in. They might even have walked past it."

The perfect accompaniment  

Rapeseed oil produced here on the estate is the perfect base for a range of dishes.
It makes a great base for all sorts of food and is a light and neutral ingredient for salad dressings and marinades where the oil lets the flavours of other ingredients shine through.

Every year the producers raise the bar and many of the products receiving the prestigious marque really are the ‘best of the best’.
