PYO of the Year 2023 – finalists

Some of the best Pick Your Own Farms in the UK have been named after being shortlisted for the national Farm Retail Awards.

Finalists have been shortlisted from Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and West Lothian for this category and they will go through to the award ceremony in March 2023.

Chairman of the Farm Retail Association, Rupert Evans said: “We have had a record number of entries in the PYO category this year and the calibre of the entrants has been phenomenal, which will make it a tough category to judge. We look forward to seeing entrants from all remaining categories now, and celebrating the very best in the business at our awards ceremony next March. Good luck to all of our finalists!”

The category, sponsored by Digitickets, has been judged earlier than others in the awards in order for the judging to take place at the height of the PYO season, allowing the visits to take place at the peak time of year for these businesses.

Remaining categories will be open for submissions from August 2022
