Fifteen honours


a FARM shop near Duffield is celebrating after scooping 15 awards at a prestigious roadshow.

Croots, which is at Farnah House Farm on Wirksworth Road, picked up four gold, seven silver and four bronze accolades at the BPEX show in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

It hit gold standard for its Lincolnshire sausages, beef, ale and mustard sausages, the Merquez –beef and lamb – sausages and the deli counter’s beef cobbler.

The silver and bronze awards included ones for lasagne, chilli and lime sausages, and different varieties of pies.

“It’s a tribute to our butchers that pork industry experts rate our products so highly,” said shop owner Steve Croot.
