Over the past eleven years, Pecks Farm Shop has won at least one local or national business award every single year. I find it very heartening that the work of the whole team here is regularly recognised in winning these awards and nominations. Because, like all successful businesses, large or small, ours is very much a team effort – built on hard working people who are all committed to providing the very best in goods and service to you, our loyal customers.

Here are few of our recent acknowledgments.

SME National Business Awards

A credible opportunity to support and share in a vision to raise the profile of industrious, hardworking and enterprising SME’s Nationally. The SME National Business Awards are a sought after accolade of achievement – a veritable endorsement of success in business

The Rural Business Awards

The Rural Business Awards were established in late 2014 by Jemma Clifford and Anna Price – two business owners who work in rural Leicestershire. The first Awards were presented in October 2015 and the RBAs are now entering their 5th year.

The Rural Business Awards (RBAs) work with partner organisations large and small, Amazon are our headline partners for the third year running. Amongst other organisations to lend their support to the RBAs have been Openreach, Prysm Group via Farm Business Innovation, HSBC, DEFRA, the CLA, Fisher German, Avantigas, the FSB, and the IFB as well as many niche rural organisations and charities.

The aim of the awards has not changed over the years and we aim to give recognition to businesses operating right across the Rural sector, to acknowledge the breadth and depth of opportunity presented by the Great British countryside, as well as to celebrate the achievements of our rural businesses, from engineering through to artisan food producers and professional services organisations.

The eleven awards are decided by an independent panel of judges drawn from the rural business sector, official agencies and rural charitable organisations. The aim is to grow The Rural Business Awards to become the UK’s most prestigious and respected awards for rural businesses and to develop a strong network and community of rural business owners.

The Countryside Alliance Awards

The Countryside Alliance Awards celebrate rural businesses that go the extra mile, who support their local economy and are the unsung heroes in every community.

It’s down to the general public to nominate their favourite rural businesses, and put them forward to be considered for a prestigious Countryside Alliance Award.

The applicants are judged on a range of criteria including their passion and commitment, sense of community, championing local food and the energy and diversity of their business.

The Regional winners will be invited to attend the Champions Reception at the House of Lords in London in June 2020 where the National Winners will be announced.
