And We Just Keep On Winning...!!!
Sorry its been a while since I have been blogging – what with holidays, birthdays, spa breaks oh and work been a busy few weeks
Oh nearly forgot and winning awards..again
This years Frome Agriculture and Cheese Show saw us sweep the board in terms of the number of wins of the retail class. Frome Cheese Show was founded in 1861 by local farmers to display a “Great Exhibition” of cheese and butter. The success of the first cheese show can be gauged from the fact that it has continued ever since and now attracts 17,000 people and this year had over 700 entries in the cheese / dairy classes.
We got GOLD for 9 products – ASDA Brand West Country Farmhouse Mature Cheddar, Extra Special Farmhouse Somerset Vintage Cheddar – which is my favourite cheese!! ASDA Brand English Extra Mature Cheddar, Extra Special Creamy Blue Stilton, Extra Special Brie de Meaux, Smartprice Salted Butter, ASDA Brand Creamery Unsalted Butter, ASDA Brand Natural Low Fat Probiotic Yogurt and finally Extra Special Champagne Rhubarb West Country Yogurt.
