Jordans Mill in the running for a ‘Rural Oscar’

We're delighted to announce that Jordans Mill has been named a finalist in the Countryside Alliance Awards 2015, dubbed by the industry the ‘Rural Oscars’.

Jordans Mill is one of four finalists in the Tourism Enterprise category and is the only Bedfordshire business to make the shortlist across the entire awards.

The Countryside Alliance Awards celebrates rural life, produce and communities across four categories including Local Food, Village Shop/Post Office, Butcher and Tourism Enterprise.

Jordans Mill will now be judged alongside the other finalists by a panel chaired by the Countryside Alliance Executive Chairman and representatives from the Daily Telegraph, Farmers Guardian and Hunter Boots.

The winners will be announced at a reception at the Houses of Parliament on 26th April 2016.

Bill Jordan, founder and Trustee of Jordans Mill, said: “It’s a privilege and an honour to be a finalist in these highly prestigious awards. The Countryside Alliance is the leading voice of rural Britain and it’s an incredible achievement for Jordans Mill and the team here to be in the running for a ‘Rural Oscar’.

“Here at Jordans Mill we have aimed to build on our long history of flour milling and cereal production by creating a food heritage attraction that preserves and celebrates our history whilst educating and inspiring the next generation.

“Through our Mill Gardens we show how food and farming sit side by side by growing cereal crops, fruits and vegetables and we then use much of this produce in our Riverside Café, which serves freshly prepared food seven days a week.

“We attract a wide range of people who come to enjoy our beautiful gardens, take a tour of the historic Mill, relax in our café or enjoy many of the varied events we run throughout the year.

“2016 is set to be an exciting year for Jordans Mill, not only due to our recognition in these awards but also thanks to the fantastic line up of activities we have planned.

“We’re extremely grateful to the Countryside Alliance for recognising the achievements and ethos of Jordans Mill and we are certainly in very good company looking at all of the other finalists. We are looking toward immensely to the reception in April.”

Jordans Mill opened officially in April 2013 and since then has established itself as one of the region’s leading food heritage attractions.

Jordans Mill attracts local visitors which come to enjoy its famous scones, families who enjoy craft workshops and the meadow and woodland, as well as day trippers and coach tours who experience all Jordans Mill has to offer including Guided Mill Tours.

Jordans Mill is also becoming established as a leading hospitality venue hosting weddings and private functions as well as conferences and business meetings.
