Best Tourism Experience
Cannon Hall Farm has won the prestigious Best Tourism Experience Award at a glittering awards ceremony in Doncaster last night.
Richard said, “It’s a real honour to receive this award, we never expected to win as we were up against some really big names in the tourism world.
We are very proud of the team here at the farm who have worked so hard to put us on the tourism map.”
Best Beef Butcher
Cannon Hall Farm Shop at Cawthorne near Barnsley has won a national butchery competition. The competition, which was organised by the English Beef & Lamb Executive and open to every farm shop in the country, was fiercely contested and a final was held at the three counties show ground near Worcester.
The finalists were each given 2 identical primal cuts of beef and had to make a minimum of 8 retail products and form a display. Each contestant was given 1 hour and Robert Webb, a supervisor at Cannon Hall Farm Shop, managed to make 15 products in the allocated time and came away with the award of Best Beef Butcher.
Managing Director of Cannon Hall Farm Robert Nicholson said ‘we are thrilled to have won an award that was open to every farm shop in the country, Rob did a great job but this is the butchery standard that we work to at Cannon Hall Farm and I think it is a reward for everyones hard work.
The farm shop at Cannon Hall Farm has been open for 10 years this December and the recent addition of the Roundhouse cattle building has certainly played its part. The cattle are so relaxed and kept to the very highest welfare standards ensuring the best quality beef all the time.
