On Thursday 20 September, the Guild of Fine Food crowned the UK’s best independent retailers in their Shop of the Year 2018 Awards. The winners were announced at an awards ceremony in London.
All the guests were treated to delicious canapes created by the Guild of Fine Foods chef and a mouthwatering selection of cheese & biscuits.
We were thrilled to win the Shop of the Year award for the best Farm Shop. Winning this award means a great deal to the whole Keelham team as it is a wonderful recognition of everybody's hard work and commitment. Our team is 300 strong and each member works hard to make Keelham a place to be proud of.
We had a fabulous time celebrating. The shop was decorated with gold balloons and our winner’s badges were worn with pride. Our team celebrated with chocolate brownie and we also held a free hamper raffle for our customers. It was wonderful to see our customers choose the winning ticket. They were delighted with their prizes.
We would like the say a huge thank you to all our team members, customers and suppliers. We have over 400 farmers and produces and we are proud to be able to make their fantastic produce available to everyone every day. Without all of you this would not have been possible. Here at Keelham we are extremely passionate about food and taste comes first for us. Together we are helping to put Yorkshire on the map as a fabulous foodie destination.
Here is what the judges had to say about us:
‘Packed with all the “farm shop classics, such as meat, fruits and vegetables,” Keelham Farm Shop also impressed us with its more novel offerings, from a range of pulses and a juice bar to its new product development, which now includes a curry range.’
