Fanny’s Farm Shop, Merstham

It is a great achievement to be a finalist and a fitting tribute to Fanny, who passed away in June. Fanny taught us all to value and enjoy everything we do. We have only ever grown and stocked products we like and believe in; products with the right ethos behind them. You will never find Turkish delight in our shop, for instance, as it was something Fanny disliked! You have to be truthful in all you produce and sell, so when someone asks you what something tastes like you can provide an honest answer. Remember the taste memory lasts longer than the price!

Garsons Farm Shop, Esher

We are absolutely thrilled to be nominated for this award. There are many great businesses, who like us, work hard to continuously promote the most delicious, great quality foods Surrey has to offer. In the summer months, we are fortunate to be able to offer customers a wide range of fresh produce directly from the farm. Over the years we have built very close relationships with local producers supporting them and are always on the lookout for new and exciting products! Thank you to all our customers, the team and our wonderful suppliers.

Priory Farm Shop, Nutfield

It is such an honour to be in the final three and we would like to thank our customers for putting us there for the third year running. We were absolutely thrilled to have won the award last year; it’s a real pat on the back for our team who do a great job to make the farm shop an enjoyable place to visit. It is very rewarding to know that people value us and we will continue to pride ourselves on offering a great range of high quality products and fantastic customer service. We would love to be crowned Farm Shop of the Year 2015!
