Let’s apply for the BBC Food and Farming Awards!

I think we’re all great here at The Oak Tree, don’t you? Flying in the face of the trend of ever bigger, ever more industrialised farms to produce good food together in a friendly community!

Please tell the BBC you think we are great!!!If you have a free moment, please would you nominate us for the BBC Food and Farming Awards “Outstanding Farmer of The Year”.

We’re all farming together, so I suggest we all fill in the question “Who is the farmer/farming team you are nominating and where in the UK are they?:” with “The Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm Community Supported Agriculture Scheme, Ipswich, Suffolk”.

I met Sheila Dillon at the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Conference (it was terribly exciting as I am a big fan of hers!) and she said the The Oak Tree is “… very much the sort of thing the The Food Programme is interested in”, so I am hoping that a little self-promotion may help to encourage her to come and see us!
