We're highly delighted that our trio of Hunmanby Grange businesses, Wold Top Brewery, Agricoa Bottling and Muddy Souls Events have been been shortlisted in The Yorkshire Post Rural Awards Diversification category.
Of the news, a delighted Tom Mellor said: "Our company ethos is to maximise our farming and geographical assets whilst sustaining the environment that is our home and to safeguard the farm for the fifth and subsequent generations.
Growing our rural businesses has meant providing employment for local people and we’re proud to be in the running for this award.”
James Mitchinson, editor of The Yorkshire Post, said: “There is so much to celebrate and cherish about Yorkshire’s countryside and the role of its resilient communities.
“From its world class landscapes managed by our farmers and landowners to attract and inspire millions of visitors every year, to the determination of families to eke out a living in ever more challenging circumstances, through these awards we want to shout about the exceptional qualities of rural Yorkshire from the rooftops.”
The winners from all 12 categories will be announced on Thursday, October 12, during a black-tie ceremony at Pavilions of Harrogate at the Great Yorkshire Showground that will be hosted by TV presenter Harry Gration - wish us luck!
