THE Lambing Shed Farm Shop has been shortlisted for a Countryside Alliance Award in the ‘Local Food/Drink’ category.

The awards are the Countryside Alliance’s annual celebration of British food and farming, enterprise and heritage through small businesses.

Now in their 13th year, the awards are driven by public nomination with more than 11,000 received this year.

The Lambing Shed Farm Shop was established in 2015 when the Mitchell family decided to diversify Moseley Hall Farm, converting the old lambing shed into a farm shop and café, which now houses a wide range of food and drink.

Farmer’s daughter and shop manager Kathryn Mitchell from The Lambing Shed said: “It’s wonderful to be selected as a finalist for the awards, to be recognised for all our hard work in this way makes it all worthwhile.”

Countryside Alliance Awards Director Sarah Lee said: “These awards provide a cause for celebration in a time of great uncertainty in the countryside. Our local produce is second to none.”
