Kent Life - - Town Life: Faversham -

My name is Katy New­ton – although ev­ery­one knows me as Cox or Coxy, which is my maiden name.

With my part­ner, Rob, I run a busi­ness called MightyFineThings based in Faver­sham, mak­ing fruit and honey vine­gars and sauces as well as Coxy’s gins and liqueurs.

In 2012 I started keep­ing bees. I also started work­ing with Faver­sham Mar­ket Co­op­er­a­tive help­ing them to mar­ket what they do. It’s the old­est mar­ket in Kent and they’d just be­come a self-run­ning co­op­er­a­tive and were keen to grow it. I’d al­ways been in­ter­ested in do­ing some­thing more cre­ative and thought why not have a mar­ket stall my­self?

Then I ended up with loads of honey from the bees and thought I’d try mak­ing a honey and chilli sauce. The rest is his­tory. This year we be­came Great Taste
