Chegworth Valley has been awarded the title of 'Best Kent Juice Producer' in the 2015 Taste of Kent Awards. The awards, which are based initially on public votes are run by Produced in Kent and are widely regarded as the 'Fod & Drink Oscars' for Kent.
After reaching the final three, a panel of judges tasted the full range of juices as well as taking into account the fruit used, how and where the juices are made as well as wider influences such as how the juices are marketed and the background story of the farm.
The awards were held at the Kent Event Centre on Thursday 12th March 2015 & Charlotte Deme collected the award, commenting "Although the farm has been established for over 30 years, we wanted to conquer Lodon first and now in the last year have focused on building up our reputation closer to home in Kent. To have not just reached the final three, but also have won in our first year is brilliant and we are thrilled!"
Chegworth Valley's juices are available to buy from their 2 London shops, at selected Farmers' Markets, online and through independent delis, restaurants and farm shops across the South East and nationwide.
About Us Chegworth Valley is a family-run fruit farm established in the beautiful Kent countryside in 1983. The fruit is hand selected and pressed in small batches, often within hours of picking. The juices are then gently pasteurised to retain the nutritional properties and flavour of the fruit. The range includes organic juices along with a wide selection of single varietal and blended fruit juices, including raspberry, strawberry, wild elderflower, rhubarb & beetroot. Famous mainly for its apple and pear juices, in recent years the farm has seen rapid expansion to now include an extensive range of top and soft fruit, vegetables, salads and herbs available seasonally. The farm has shops at Borough Market and Notting Hill as well as at the farm gate and attends numerous farmers markets throughout London and Kent. Read more...
