A rapeseed oil producer near Sleaford has been crowned Lincolnshire’s Grower of the Year ... for the second year running.

Ownsworth’s, in Fulbeck, claimed the title at this year’s Select Lincolnshire Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards.

The annual awards, held recently at Lincoln Minster School, recognise and reward the people and businesses behind Lincolnshire’s billion pound food and farming trade.

Ronnie Ownsworth’s, who runs Ownsworth’s with husband Andrew, said: “We are absolutely delighted to win this award on behalf of Team Ownsworth, who have worked so hard throughout the year

“We are always hopeful we will do well at the awards, but with so many other talented producers we never take it for granted.

“This is the second consecutive year we have won Grower of the Year, which demonstrates our consistent dedication to growing and producing the very best cold pressed rapeseed oil – this award demonstrates to our customers that they are buying a top quality product.”

Gillian Richardson, from Select Lincolnshire, which organises the awards, said: “Winning such a prestigious county award is a great achievement. I would like to thank all the businesses for the valued contribution they make to Lincolnshire’s renowned food, drink and hospitality industry”.
