Food Producer of the Year: Great Food Club Awards 2020/21
Manor Farm Yogurt, Thrussington, Leicestershire
The winner is Manor Farm in Thrussington for its outstanding yogurt. When you taste it, you’ll understand why – Manor Farm products are exceptional. The ‘Natural Live Smooth & Creamy’ variety is velvety rich, deeply creamy, fresh and wholesome. The fruited versions are well balanced and subtly sweet.
The secret is the fat- and protein-rich milk produced by Manor Farm’s 300-strong herd of pedigree Friesians. Manor Farm owners Peter and Cheryl Holmes have farmed in Thrussington for more than 40 years, taking over from Peter’s father, who bought the farm before the Second World War.
All the Finalists create superb products but it’s Manor Farm that takes the coveted title of Great Food Club Food Producer of the Year 2020/21.
