WINNER: Darts Farm, Topsham

From the humble beginnings of the farm shop hut nearly 40 years ago Darts Farm has continually evolved. The farm shop is still at the centre of their success, with the emphasis on food that is locally grown reared, baked or caught. They now have an on-site master butcher, fishmonger, baker, deli, cider maker and restaurant.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: Johns of Instow, Instow

One visit and it’s easy to see why Johns is firmly established on the local foodie map as an award winning destination. The deli is full of local cheeses from the region, UK and rest of the world. They have award winning charcuterie, pies and smoked fish, their own homemade quiches, pâtés, cakes, desserts, freshly baked bread and marinated olives.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: Riverford Farm Shop, Buckfastleigh

A farm shop packed full of tempting essentials from bread and cereal to our award-winning pies and pasties.
