A popular farm shop near Bristol has been named among the best retailers in the South West after being shortlisted in the regional finals at the Farm Shop and Deli Show 2023.

Flourish opened on Glenavon Farm in 2020 when Adam Stratton teamed up with experienced food retailers Paul Hargreaves and Paul Castle and transformed the old dairy buildings into a foodhall and restaurant.

It has since gone on to be a big success with the shop and restaurant often busy weekends. It has led the management to open a second shop toward the back of the site, while electric charging facilities are being introduced on the car park.

Back in February, Bristol World reviewed the breakfast, which although not cheap, proved to be worth the £13 with thick-cut back bacon, plump buthcer’s sausages and juicy tomatoes.

And now the business has been named included in the South West regional shortlist for the 2023 Retailer Awards at the Farm Shop & Deli Show, at the NEC in Birmingham on April 25. Flourish is joined by six other categories in the shortlist.

Paul Castle, director of Flourish, said: “We are enormously proud to have been nominated as a finalist for the Farm Shop and Deli awards 2023. Putting people and planet before profits is at the heart of how we operate at Flourish, it is great that the awards are recognising and celebrating this.
