Winner: Garsons Farm Shop, Esher

“This category was much harder than I thought – each of the finalists were best at something and I’m so glad I employed a scoring system,” said judge Diana Roberts. “The winner was a surprise to me when I added them all up – could have been any one of the three. However, Garsons is clean, welcoming, well laid out with an overwhelming selection of local produce – much of it grown on their own fields surrounding the shop, and an equally spectacular selection of sourced products – approximately 60% sourced within 40 miles of the store. During our visit to Garsons we engaged with a number of staff at all levels and this is what clinched it for them. This family run business – running into several generations has a high standard of customer service and the enthusiasm and love the staff have for the business and the products they are selling is infectious.”

Highly commended: Priory Farm Shop, Nutfield

Highly commended: Fannys Farm Shop, Merstham
