As some of you may have seen on Facebook over the weekend we were the proud winners of the 'Rural Enterprise Award' at the 2014 Farm Business Food and Farming Industry Awards!

The awards were presented by the evening’s speaker, the author, broadcaster, actor, entertainer and former Member of Parliament Gyles Brandreth who delighted and teased the audience all the way through, ably assisted by compere Sean Sparling.

The Rural Enterprise Award was sponsored by Strutt and Parker, in a press release from Farm Business Wheelbirks was described as "A very clever concept and something that is really delivering a big difference to a small family farming business said the judges. It utilizes its geography very well, boosts local employment, engages with the public, both educational and well financed. Tom & Lucinda Richardson, joint owner & manager received the award from Richard Means, director and partner at Strutt & Parker."
