WHAT THE WIN­NER SAID:

It’s ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic, we are so ex­cited to be here and de­lighted to be the win­ners of this award. I would like to think we have won be­cause of the job we are do­ing ed­u­cat­ing Es­sex, teach­ing chil­dren what food is grown lo­cally, the farm­ers, the field to the plate, how to use lo­cally sourced food and eat­ing good healthy foods. I would hope it shows peo­ple how good we are and it will bring more chil­dren to the pro­gramme. Thank you very much. It is a great hon­our and also down to the hard work and amaz­ing team.

WHAT THE JUDGE SAID:

There has been a pas­sion for ed­u­cat­ing chil­dren and adults about the ori­gins of their food for more than 30 years at Bar­ley­lands. This is now man­i­fested in a vi­brant ed­u­ca­tion pro­gramme that reaches thou­sands of peo­ple and lit­er­ally takes pro­duce from the field straight into the kitchen.
