Topsham visitor attraction scoops award

A POPULAR visitor attraction in Topsham has been named the best local food retailer in a competition run by BBC Radio Four.

Darts Farm scooped the prize in the radio station’s food and farming awards. The company was nominated by customers before the BBC’s judging panel visited the venue.

Brothers Michael and James Dart, who run the business, went to the awards ceremony as one of three finalists and were ecstatic at their win.

Michael said: “We are overjoyed to have won this prestigious award.

“It is the ultimate recognition of a lot of hard work, over many years, by many people – our team, our family, our local food and drink community and of course our loyal customers”.
