Voting is now open for your favourite local heroes in the Dorset Magazine Food, Drink & Farming Awards!

Dorset Magazine Food, Drink & Farming Awards are back for 2019, to champion our county’s food and drink. The awards will take place at the Italian Villa in Compton Acres, Poole on 26th September and again Dorset Food & Drink are Headline Sponsors for this fabulous celebration.

Dorset is renowned for its top-notch produce and the passion of the people who work in the industry. So, what better way to champion this success than with awards, celebrating heroes nominated and voted for by you?

The team at Dorset Magazine knows that one of the region’s greatest passions is the food and drink that is produced in this county and the farms from which that produce comes. These awards are designed to showcase the great and the good in Dorset and rewarded all those hardworking people behind the scenes.

We all know that Dorset’s food and drink scene is thriving, with producers and growers across the county showing off their wares at high quality cafes, restaurants and hotels. Plus many local retailers are spreading the love for Dorset’s top produce too. It is these ambassadors for the county that we want to recognise.

This is why Dorset Magazine along with Dorset Food & Drink and other sponsors, want to hear from you. However big or small, new or established – we want to hear about the real heroes of the local food and drink scene.

Take a look at all the categories for this year’s awards and get nominating your food, drink and farming heroes now at

Don’t forget, voting closes on Monday 29th July 2019.
