Robinson Reed Layton were proud to support this year’s Cornwall Farm Business Awards, held on 25th February, at The Pavilion Centre, Royal Cornwall Showground and organised by the farming charity The Addington Fund.
Robinson Reed Layton were the official sponsors for the Best Farm Processor category which was judged by Grants Specialist Alison Elvey. At the event Tax Director, Steve Maggs presented the award to the winners, Bill and Rachel Clarke, from Trewithen Dairy.
The Best Farm Processing Award recognises leaders in the industry who take raw produce and process it into a new and different product.
Steve Maggs, Tax Director, was delighted to take part saying:
“Farm Processing is a necessary part of the local agricultural industry. Adding value to primary produce through the development of new innovative high quality products is enabling many farmers to grow and develop.
“Bill and Rachel have proven themselves to be sector leaders by building Trewithen Dairy to the business it is today, using milk from local cows within a 25 mile radius to produce milk, butter, clotted cream and other diary products, as well as heavily investing in their staff and high quality standards.
“The other nominees , David Simmons from Riviera Produce, Connor Downs and Richard, Ian and Terry Lobb from Lobbs Farm Shop, Heligan should also be highly commended as they are providing high quality products, supporting Cornish Farming, and in the case of the Lobbs showcasing what Cornwall food producers have to offer.”
The Cornwall Farm Business Awards were launched to highlight innovation and resilience in the farming industry in Cornwall. Agriculture is one of the biggest contributors to Cornwall’s economy and the awards celebrate industry leaders who are at the forefront of their field.
