The inaugural Rural Business Awards took place on 1 October 2015 at Stapleford Park, near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.  The Awards which recognise rural business success across the UK are the brainchild of rural specialist & MD of Be Rural, Jemma Clifford and Management Consultant Anna Price, they were supported by the CLA and sponsored by Fisher German. 

200 guests attended a prestigious awards dinner, where the best of British rural entrepreneurship was recognised in 10 award categories.  Fisher German was delighted to be associated with 7 of the fantastic finalists.  The Awards were judged by an independent panel of judges and presented for the 10 categories, which span a selection of sectors from start-ups to renewable energy and farm diversification to rural construction, enabling a range of businesses to seek recognition. 

The Rural Business Award Champion of Champions was presented to winner of the Best Rural Start-Up Award, Lily Warne Wool; a mother and son partnership founded and based on the edge of Dartmoor in Chudleigh, Devon.  The family keep a flock of pure Greyface Dartmoor sheep whose fleeces are spun into Aran wool and used by local employees to create products both at the home farm studio and in their own homes in the community.  Lily Warne products can now be found throughout the UK and Lily Warne Wool has become a leading figure in the Devon Wool industry. 

A huge congratulations to Claremont Farm Shop, The Hayhurst Arms, The Hexgreave Estate, Pegoty Hedge, The Tatton Estate, Honesberie Shooting School, Warner Edwards and all the shortlisted finalists who each make a vital contribution to the rural sector.

A very enjoyable and worthwhile evening and congratulations to all of the winners, including our clients' and the new rural businesses we had the pleasure of meeting on the night.
