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.

Trip Advisor


  • My family and I visited last Sunday for the roast dinner and all I can say is wow.

    The portions were generous and there was plenty of meat, on both the small and large plates, and a good selection of veg. Everything was cooked perfectly and it was piping hot… There is also a great selection of desserts and the apple pie was delicious.

    If you are ever in the area do yourself a favour and visit!

  • The farm shop is well stocked with an in house Bakery and Butchery department, all offering excellent produce, much produced by the proprietors themselves and all beautifully displayed.

  • The children LOVED picking the strawberries in the fields, the restaurant was absolutely superb, it was busy but the staff were very attentive, the garden was beautiful and their was plenty of space for the children to run around in.

    All of there produce including meat, eggs, fruit and vegetables are used in the kitchen and the result is a traditional farmhouse menu.
