Family-run organic farm producer Strawberry Fields took the Grower of the Year gong at this year’s Select Lincolnshire Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards.

It is the second year in a row the business has received the accolade.

Pam Bowers, from the business, said: “We are very honoured to receive this accolade for two years in succession.

“It is particularly apt as 2015 marks our 40th year of organic growing at Strawberry Fields.

“No-one ever said farming was easy, coping out in all weathers, battling with whatever the elements might throw at you.

“No longer time to stop and stare, it is more about the stress of meeting deadlines, so it is good to feel appreciated, to know we are getting it right - yes, a good morale boost all round.”
