The article looks at Colin Dawes' Foxbury Farm Shop & Butchery in Oxfordshire, England, selected as the 2007 Local Food Farmer of the Year by "Farmers Weekly" periodical. The outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in 2001 has forced Dawes to review the operation of his business. Judges were impressed by Dawes' efforts to position his business to withstand the arrival of a supermarket nearby. Foxbury Farm holds fundraising almost monthly with all proceeds given to various local charities.
