Farmer’s wife Ronnie Ownsworth has won a national award for her role as a champion of British food.

Mrs Unsworth, who runs Fulbeck Farms with husband Andrew has been made a Food Heroine 2017 by the Co-op.

Her role includes encouraging the community to get involved in British Food Fortnight celebrations which take place at the end of September and beginning of October each year.

“The range of skills and achievements amongst the 40 are impressive, from farmers, to brewers, bakers, cheese makers and chocolatiers.
