WINNER: John Sinclair, Craigies (Edinburgh)
Diversifying a 250-acre arable farm in South Queensferry into one of Scotland’s best-known and respected farm shops in the form of Craigie’s Farm Deli and Café, has given John Sinclair years of experience in his field.
Rob Copley, chair of FRA, said:
“John is such a worthy winner of the Lifetime Achievement award. He was an esteemed member of the FRA committee for more than 15 years as well as running a hugely popular and successful farm and farm shop near Edinburgh.
“Not only is John highly respected in the industry, he is also a genuinely lovely person and we are so grateful to him for all his hard work and loyalty to FRA. His accolade is very much deserved.”
