A FARMER from Royston has won an award from breadmakers Warburtons in recognition of the wheat he grows.

Tim Whitehead has been awarded a Warburtons and Centaur Growers Award and was named southern regional winner 2007.

Mr Whitehead of Vine Farm said: "My family and I are really happy to have won the Warburtons and Centaur Growers award - especially as we've been growing for Warburtons for seven years and our crop for them is now the mainstay of our arable business."

He added: "It's a fantastic feeling to be recognised as the best Southern regional grower by such an important consumer of British wheat."

Mr Whitehead beat off competition from other Centaur farmers who, as part of a supply contract between Centaur and Warburtons, all produce Hereward milling wheat.

Brett Warburton, Warburtons executive director and Bob Beard Purchasing director at Warburtons presented the award.

Mr Warbuton said: "This award acknowledges our appreciation for our growers' ability and commitment to producing the highest quality of wheat to deliver the baking credentials we require.
