The Pride of the Cairngorms National Park was celebrated at the Grantown Show last week (Thursday 10th August).
The Cairngorms National Park is home to some of the highest quality farming in the UK. Now in their fifth year, the Pride of the Park awards showcase the best of farming, equestrian and domestic science in the National Park.
This year the CNPA’s Pride of the Park awards are sponsored by Elephants in the Pantry, who support locally sourced Cairngorms produce. Each winner received a voucher to be spent in their Grantown-on-Spey shop.
Receiving the 2017 Pride of the Park rosettes were:
Cattle winner: Michael Robertson, Fodderletter, Tomintoul
Sheep winner: Jim Simmons, Ruthven, Tomintoul
Domestic: Val Inglis, Boat of Garten
Horse: Carol Rafferty, Newtonmore
Will Boyd-Wallis, the Cairngorms National Park Authority’s Head of Land Management & Conservation said: “A healthy farming industry is crucial to the Cairngorms National Park not just for our economy but for our landscapes and wildlife too We are delighted to celebrate the Pride of the Park awards which showcases the best of livestock, horses and domestic delights to be found in the National Park”
