Butcher’s Shop Awards Success for Local Farm Shop
Staff at Countrystyle Meats Farm Shop at Lancaster Leisure Park are flying high this week after getting into the top three in a national butchers competition.
Organised by the Meat Trades Journal, the “Butcher’s Shop of the Year Awards” celebrates the very best in butchery throughout the country. There are 14 different awards and Countrystyle Meats received a finalist’s certificate, in the Butcher’s Plus category.
Taking place in the stunning ballroom of the renowned Rosewood Hotel in Holborn, London, the owners of the farm shop Alan Beecroft and Heather Cornthwaite, together with the owners of Lancaster Leisure Park, Allan and Gloria Blackburn, were invited to attend a lunch before the awards were presented by Bob Chamberlain from Sky Sports.
Getting down to the final three in a national awards is no mean feat and gives the team, a well deserved pat on the back for all their hard work. Opened just 3 years ago, the farm shop has seen visitor numbers treble over this time and now they have a constant stream of regular customers each week.
