Estates team celebrate six awards at the Devon County Show
Clinton Devon Estates' forestry and farming teams have been recognised with six awards at this year's Devon County Show.
The Forestry and Environment team, managed by John Wilding, scooped three separate awards in the Woodland Competition. Hawkerland Brake near Newton Poppleford took first place in Class 4b as well as the judge's overall prize - the Newman Perpetual Challenge Trophy. In North Devon, Pencleave Wood near Torrington also took second and third place in two further classes.
The Devon Woodland Competition, co-ordinated by the Devon Agricultural Society aims to increase awareness of the value and ecological and silvicultural processes within the county's woodlands.
Meanwhile, Farm Manager George Perrott and the Clinton Devon Farms team were awarded 3rd place for their Texel ewes in the Aged Ram category as well as 5th place in the Devon Beef Cattle class, for their Red Devon Heifer born in 2011.
The show was a great success with farmers, foresters, food suppliers and many more coming together to celebrate the best of Westcountry life.
