In July 2017 we entered our butter into the Cheese and Dairy section of The Great Yorkshire Show which is a shop-window for the best products in the country. Our butter was judged ‘naked’ without any branded packaging, so that the judges could not be biased in favour of known and famous names. We were, therefore, delighted to receive a bronze award in our category and were very proud to then display our packaged butter alongside national dairy manufacturers.
As newcomers to this part of the dairy industry, it was a great achievement to gain such a prestigious award in our first year.
The 2014 Farm Business Cream Awards ceremony on Thursday evening was a glittering success, recognising the best in the industry in the presence of an audience of top industry figures.
NFU President Meurig Raymond, who was a member of the judging panel, congratulated the winners, while food industry marketing guru Hamish Renton was the keynote speaker at the event, held at the National Motorcycle Museum near Birmingham.
"The Cream Awards have really built on their position as the benchmark Dairy Industry Awards," says organiser Caroline Whibley. "For this, the second year of the awards, the entries were once again fantastic and the winning line up is hugely impressive."
Derby Hill Farm was highly commended for the Award for Health and Welfare.
