Winner: James Cossins

From his farm at Tarrant Monkton, near Blandford, James manages a mixed dairy, arable and beef farm as well running, along with his wife, the award winning Langton Arms Pub. This popular village pub is proud to support Dorset produce on its menu, which includes meat from the family’s own herd of Aberdeen Angus and Herefords, their own sausages and local game, as well as bread made on the premises, veg from the pub’s large vegetable garden and local butter, cheese, ales and ciders. The couple also run the Langton Arms Butchery at nearby Tarrant Rawston which offers traditional cuts of Dorset sourced meat and game. He even found time to get involved in Open Farm Sunday to help connect people with where their food comes from.
