Herdysleep are national finalists of the 2019 Countryside Alliance Awards, otherwise known as the Rural Oscars! Tomorrow, Wednesday 19th June, 2019, our Herdy and Herdysleep flock will be travelling down to London for the “Champions’ Reception” at the House of Lords. MPs and Ministers will be in attendance, along with the national judging panel, to decide on the national winners for each of five categories.
Known also as the “Rural Oscars”, the Awards are the Countryside Alliance’s annual celebration of British food & farming, enterprise and heritage through small hard-working businesses. They are set apart from other award schemes because they are driven by public nomination, offering customers the chance to tell the Alliance why their favourite businesses are worthy of national acclaim.
Herdysleep won the Rural Enterprise category for the North West of England. The key qualification to win the Rural Enterprise award is, “Is this business a growing asset to its community and making a real contribution?”
