We reveal the winner of Product/Producer of the Year

This award recognises local producers whose passion for Hertfordshire produce is at the heart of their business. It’s open to all producers who demonstrate a real passion for our county’s food and drink.

The finalists...

Bridget B’s, Watton-at-Stone

Our family-run business at Sacombe Hill Farm is committed to producing sustainable quality meat with passion and a personal service. You’ll recognise the quality of the meats our butchery has to offer from your very first bite.

Farr Brew, Wheathampstead

Farr Brew is a traditional brewery supplying beer to around 100 pubs throughout Hertfordshire. We produce award-winning beers and have community concerns at our core – everything we do is dedicated to minimising our impact on the environment while ensuring our customers are engaged with the process.

Puddingstone Distillery, Wilstone

Founded by husband and wife team, Ben and Kate Marston, Puddingstone Distillery is Hertfordshire’s first gin distillery. Our award-winning Campfire Gin is available in three different expressions – London Dry, Cask Aged and Navy Strength.

And the winner is...

Farr Brew, Wheathampstead

The judges said of the winner: they were particularly impressed by some of Farr Brew’s initiatives, such as a 98 per cent product recycling success across their business, the creation of a hop collective and the work within their immediate community despite this resulting on occasions in an adverse impact upon their profitability.
