Fine Farm Produce Awards 2019
The overall Farming and Nature award was presented to Neil Heseltine, a fourth-generation farmer at Hilltop Farm in Malham, in the Yorkshire Dales. Neil and his partner Leigh embrace sustainable ways of farming to enhance and protect their landscape, which encompasses two Sites of Special Scientific Interest, and actively promote nature-friendly practices within the wider farming community.
Winner of the Overall Food Award was Beningbrough Farm, near York, for its Aberdeen Angus beef, a breed that has long been regarded as one of the best in the world.
Barrington Court, a Tudor estate near Yeovil, took the top prize for its traditional craft cider made with apples from wildlife-rich orchards that date back to the 19th century.
