We are National Finalists for the National 2016 FARMA Awards

We are ecstatic to have been shortlisted as a national finalist in the 2016 FARMA awards.  We are finalists of Large Farm Shop of the Year and also Farm Restaurant of the Year.  The FARMA awards are designed to represent the best true farm retail businesses.  The judging process to get to this stage was not easy; having submitted a video of the business and application, a panel of leading retailers met to discuss the applications.  During this stage, those applications showing real drive, passion and demonstrating real skill in running a business and championing real farm produce direct from the farm were then shortlisted.


Michael Mack, Managing agent for FARMA, said

“Lifton Farm Shop submitted a great application this year and it’s a real credit that they have been shortlisted. This year the judges will be looking for businesses which have passionate leaders, fantastic staff and real understanding about the importance in the connection between the business and the farm.”


Over the coming months we will have visits from the judges and secret shoppers to explore the business in detail and on 29th February will be on tender hooks to see if we have been awarded the awards.  If we do win the category we will then be put forward to the grand finale with the chance to win the National Farm Retail Champion of 2016 award.   The FARMA awards have been assessing the farm shops, farmers’ markets and PYO for over 10 years. Each year FARMA look to find those businesses which not only demonstrate a real business acumen but also champion quality produce which they have produced themselves.

    Absolutely to die for food! Roast as usual completely stunning and a huge portion. Dessert was also very tasty - lots of syrup on the sponge! We will definitely be back, often! Thank you :)

  • A little gem! We loved the Lifton Farm Shop! The quality of the fruit and vegetables was outstanding, as was the meat and cheese. As for the icecream, not only delicious but huge qualities. My favourites were the white chocolate and the pistachio.
