" We're absolutely ecstatic with the news that we've been shortlisted for a Rural Business Award.

Receiving this recognition from the Rural Business Awards and Amazon is the icing on the cake of what's been a great journey for our business and we can't wait to attend the Regional Final later this year."

The regional final will be held at Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester on Friday 25th October.

The national final will take place early next year.
