Whilst at The Frome Independant market we met the lovely Elaine and David Walsh who run the successful Rode Post Office and Village Shop.   Recent finalists of the 'Rural Oscars' run by the Countryside Alliance they were looking for fresh local produce to stock in their shop and stopped by to taste our pies, pastries, chutneys and preserves.  Impressed they placed an order straight away and now order from us on a regular basis.

Freshly packaged and ready for delivery
We work closely with Elaine and David to ensure their customers receive a good selection of our produce on a weekly basis, always freshly made to order and delivered at a time which suits their busy shop.  It's been so nice to get to know Elaine and hear the feedback she receives from customers.  We're thrilled to be part of their very successful business.  If you'd like to stock any of our produce please email us snowdropcottagefinefoods@gmail.com

Humbled, shocked and elated are only some of the emotions we felt when we found out we had won, for the second year running the category of 'best preserve' at the 2014 Bristol Good Food Awards.  There was fierce competition and with some of the most well known and respected food judges out there blind tasting our produce we were nervous to say the least. 

Thank you to all those who voted for us, we wouldn't have got this far without you.  

North Somerset Show

We were thrilled to win 'best trade stand' in the food hall by anonymous judges at North Somerset Show this year.  When we received our award we were told our friendliness and presentation of our stall had really impressed the judges.  We love meeting our customers and take such pride in our produce, it's nice to know our enthusiasm shines though! Thank you to all those who judged our stand and awarded us first place!

Pretty Nostalgic photoshoot at Oldbury on Severn Community Shop

We were thrilled to be asked a long to a photoshoot hosted by Pretty Nostalgic magazine at Oldbury Community shop earlier this month.  Although we had a seriously busy weekend ahead I really couldn't resist going along and sharing in the buzz and excitement which radiated from everyone who was involved.

I love photography so I was determined to hang around and try and pick up a few tips!

It's often the small detail which really counts, seeing these mugs with steaming coffee and tea really made me smile!  What a lovely touch which I'm sure helped Sarah write an amazing article for the magazine!

Here are our lovely preserves on the shelves and ready to go, our Oldbury on Severn customers have I hear really been enjoying the Grapefruit and ginger marmalade, don't worry - we have more prepped and ready to go!

I think this could be one of the pics ready for the magazine, doesn't it all look gorgeous!

Do keep an eye out for the latest issues with pictures from Oldbury and of course of lovely offerings.  I'll be waiting with bated breath for my copy to fall on the doormat.   A big thank you to all those at Oldbury Shop for letting me come and share in the fun, it was a fantastic morning!
