Six Cumbrian firms are through to the North West finals of the ‘Rural Oscars’.
The Rural Oscars aim to support and promote rural communities. They celebrate people going the extra mile to ensure that the rural Britain's food and farming industry, small businesses, traditional skills, forward-thinking enterprises and, most of all, its people, can flourish.
Previous award winning rural businesses from Cumbria are Storth Community Cooperative Ltd and Growing Well in Kendal.
This year in the local food category Hawkshead Relish Company are finalists along with Croft Farm Meats, of Carlisle.
There are three Cumbrian finalists in the enterprise category: Eden Foodival, Lanercost Tea Room and Salkeld’s Watermill
And Mansergh Hall Farm is shortlisted in the butcher category.
Cumbria’s strong showing in the finals has delighted South Lakes Mp Tim Farron.
He said: “I want to congratulate Hawkshead Relish and Mansergh Hall Farm for making the North West final of the Rural Oscars.
“These Awards are an excellent way to promote the local businessmen and women who are working hard to keep our economy going. I have my fingers crossed for both businesses – I hope they get the awards that their hard work deserves.”
