Uncle Henry’s Farm Shop, Butchery & Café just north of Lincoln in Grayingham, won Retailer of the Year and Tea Room of the Year, as well as receiving a Highly Commended Award for Wholesaler of the Year at the Select Lincolnshire Food, Drink and Hospitality awards 2016.
The annual awards recognise and reward the people and businesses behind Lincolnshire’s billion-pound food and farming industry.
Emma Ward, Julie Hall and Katie Leeman from Uncle Henry’s collected the award, presented by Councillor Colin Davie, at the annual ceremony held at the Lincoln Minster School on Tuesday evening.
Talking about their award win, Emma Ward, General Manager at Uncle Henry’s said:
Winning the Select Lincolnshire Tea Room of the Year Award and Retailer of the Year Award is a great accolade for the whole team here at Uncle Henry’s. It recognises our position as pig and potato farmers and our commitment to producing top quality, tasty produce for the farm shop, butchery and café including our award winning One Show Lincolnshire Sausage, range of deli products and homemade cakes, quiches and ready meals.
Our café menu showcases many of our home produced products and all of our meals are prepared in house. The awards are a great reflection of our team’s hard work, care and attention to detail, delivering our customers a fantastic food shopping and eating experience.
Uncle Henry’s are previous double award winners, last year they won Producer of the Year and Retailer of the Year and were Highly Commended for Tea Room of the Year.
