Hosted the Isle of Man Food and Farming Awards in the DEFA tent at the Royal Manx Show. I was part of the judging team a month or so ago, it was great to see the four finalists again with a number of other entrants and past winner. All of the finalists in their own way were special and worthy, but only one could win in each category. Consequently the Farming Award went to David, Chris and Mark Kneale from Lough Doo Farm Ballaugh and the Food Award went to Andreas Meat Co. The other finalists were Will McMillin of Lhen and Betty’s Pies and Cider Company, a well known sight with Betty’s Pie Caravan in our constituency. Congratulations to them all.
