We are delighted to announce that Toby Haynes Family Butchers has been shortlisted to win a Countryside Alliance Award in the South West Butcher category.
The Awards are the Countryside Alliance’s annual celebration of British food & farming, enterprise and heritage through our small hard-working businesses. The awards are now in their thirteenth year and have become the definitive rural business award to win. They are set apart from other award schemes because they are driven by public nomination, offering customers the chance to tell us why their favourite businesses are worthy of national acclaim. The awards received over eleven thousand nominations this year so Toby Haynes Family Butchers has done extremely well to be shortlisted.
Established in 2015, Toby Haynes Family Butchers is a family run local butchers located in the heart of Corsham. With a small enthusiastic team, they promote locally sourced meats and boast a wide range of meats and products from their in-house deli.
Countryside Alliance Awards Director Sarah Lee commented: “We have been overwhelmed by nominations this year. The secret to the Rural Oscars’ popularity is that they honour the people involved in these businesses and not just their produce or services. They exist to sing the praises of those who work hard to keep our communities and rural economy ticking, but don’t seek the spotlight. These awards provide a cause for celebration in a time of great uncertainty in the countryside. Our local produce is second to none and there are many community heroes and businesses worthy of national recognition.”
Toby, who heads up the business said “I am completely overwhelmed that we have been shortlisted for such a highly competitive category in such a prestigious awards. The fact that it is a customer nomination process also is a credit to the team.”
