All-day tasting event will mark milestone.

SISTERS Nicola and Rebecca Bartlett will be celebrating their first year in business with a special tasting event.

Nicola, 23, and Rebecca, 19, are set to host the tasting day at their farm shop in Honiton on Saturday, October 9.

Tastings will be on offer from 10am to 4pm at Bartletts Farm Shop.

Visitors will be able to meet some of the shop’s suppliers and try local produce.

“We have had great support from regulars and new customers keep coming,” said Nicola.

“A lot of people are saying the farm shop is just what Honiton needed. It is on their doorstep.”

Since launching their business, the sisters have won a gold and two silver awards for their sausages.

They are concentrating on the fresh meat side of the business.

The shop is now selling Otter Valley Ice Cream and has cut out the middleman by buying fresh vegetables from Clarke’s of Cullompton.
