WINNER: Kevin Stokes, Farndon Fields, Market Harborough
Hailed as running one of the best farm shops in the country, owner Kevin is highly regarded for his innovation, his kindness and willingness to help others. Farndon Fields has won a raft of awards and is a true family business.
Kevin is a first generation farmer, his dad was an engineer but Kevin just had a passion for growing stuff. His passion as a young teenager lead Kevin to attending Agricultural college and whilst at college he started growing a few fruits and veggies on a small plot – selling them from door to door on his bike.
Upon leaving college Kevin partnered with a local beef, sheep, grass farmer college friend and moved to Farndon Fields where he introduced potatoes and vegetables, with soft fruit soon to follow.
In 2022 Farndon Fields is growing from strength to strength, with their two children Ollie and Nicki both now working in the business – it is only right that Kevin should be proud
He has worked from the bottom up, delivering veggies on his bike to what he is today – A HUGE family business.
