ATHENA Caile from Taunton has this week (May 19, 2017) been crowned as the winner of a birthday card competition organised by an award-winning farm shop in the area.
Six-year-old Athena designed a 20th birthday card for Rumwell Farm Shop, which is located on the A38 between Taunton and Wellington, and was awarded first place.
Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, said: "This year we are celebrating the 20th birthday of our farm shop and wanted to involve local children in the celebration so the birthday card competition seemed like a perfect idea.
"We would like to say a huge congratulations to Athena for winning the competition. Her card was well thought out and you could see she had spent a lot of time and effort on her creation. We were delighted to present Athena with a sweetie hamper and her birthday card will be displayed in the cafe for all our customers to see.
The runner up in the competition was seven-year-old Lily-Diana Mei Casuncad from Taunton. She was presented with a sweet selection.
Rumwell Farm Shop is an independent, family-run, award-winning business owned by the Mitchell family. It was originally a potato store, when David and Anne Mitchell began selling their potatoes and free range eggs at the gate.
Due to customer demand, the range of products soon increased and the farm shop grew into the place it is today. David and Anne's sons, James and Jack, are now also involved in the business.
Rumwell Farm Shop has a traditional butchery counter selling free range pork and Aberdeen Angus beef reared just four miles away on the family farm. There is also a delicatessen, bakery, jam kitchen and food hall.
Home grown potatoes are also still available as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, flowers, gifts and cards.
The Rumwell Cafe, which opened in May 2015, can seat approximately 80 people. The food prepared in the cafe kitchen is sourced from the farm shop, the Mitchell family farm and regional suppliers.
Families are welcome to the cafe and there is a menu especially for children. The cafe also serves afternoon teas, carvery on a Sunday and is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages.
