The Old Farmhouse Bakery wins 2008 Countryside Alliance Award


Just received this from The Old Farmhouse Bakery in Steventon:

"We’re absolutely thrilled to tell you that The Gallery and The Old Farmhouse Bakery have won the Best Rural Enterprise Award for the South of England in the 2008 Countryside Alliance Awards.

A huge thank you to all of you who voted for us and supported our nomination.

The Awards celebrate the communities, produce, traditions and skills of the countryside through the people who work so hard to make the British Countryside work. They recognise the best of those who’ve taken up the challenge of diversification as well as excellence in traditional businesses.

The Countryside Alliance say this years crop of winners are an inspiring group of people, all of them dedicated to their communities, supporting each other and ensuring a future for rural Britain and its enterprising businesses, whatever the wider economic climate.

We, along with all the other regional winners, now go forward to the national final for the chance to add a UK title to our regional one, competing against fellow Enterprise winners from across England, Wales and Scotland. Held at a reception at the House of Lords on Wednesday 18th March and hosted by The Baroness Golding the overall national winners will be announced on the day.

We’re really looking forward to our trip up to the House of Lords and meeting all the other regional winners. You can see the details of winners across all categories at
