COWDRAY farm shop has been voted one of the best in the country, having been placed second in a prestigious competition run by The Times.

The shop has been described by The Times restaurant critic Giles Coren as: “a store... so bounteous, rare and fat as to make Waitrose in Marylebone High Street look like the Mogadishu branch of Lidl.”

The Times featured the list that ‘foodies really can’t do without’ and voted Cowdray second in the top 20 farm shops in the country.

In first place was Daylesford Organic Farm Shop in Gloucestershire.

A statement on the farm shop website says: “We’re all really thrilled and would like to thank the team at The Times and, of course, all the team here at the shop and behind the scenes who have put so much hard work into the business over the past 12 months.”

The shop was also the winner of the FARMA’S best on-farm cafe-restaurant 2012.
