FARMA Local Foods Awards 2012
Rising Star Award – FARMA Local Foods Awards 2012
Excellence in retailing local food in Dumfries and Galloway has been recognised nationally. Kilnford Farmshop and Restaurant, on the outskirts of Dumfries, has been awarded the Rising Star Award at a presentation in Edinburgh organised by FARMA, the leading farm retail organisation in the United Kingdom. Kilnford faced strong competition in this section from across the United Kingdom.
The owner Mr Jock Rome commented,“It is particularly pleasing that the huge effort made by our staff, both in the shop and on the farm, has been rewarded. They are committed to high standards in food production and presentation and so it is wonderful to be given national recognition. Kilnford Farmshop has created much needed jobs in the region, provided an outlet for a variety of local producers and a source of good local fare for our customers.”
