Nanny Kay’s Farm Shop in Wickford, was the winner in the Muddy Stilettos awards’ best farm shop or deli in Essex category for the second year running, to the delight of owners Paul and Kay Allen.

The business was set up husband and wife, Paul, 59, and Kay, 63, less than four years ago.

The couple won the competition last year and have taken the crown again for the second year running.

Kay said: “We were overwhelmed to be last year’s winner but to win it again this year, is beyond our wildest dreams. Especially having only opened less than four years ago.”
