Turnbull’s can now reveal they have installed a vintage Tractor outside the Northumbrian Food Hall on the Willowburn Retail Park in Alnwick and have launched a customer competition to help give the Tractor a name.
Three prizes are on offer for the top 3 names, which will be judged on Saturday the 24th of April, with the overall winner’s name being bestowed upon the vehicle. Entries can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org or via any of the @turnbullsfood social media accounts.
The tractor has been installed help promote the ‘local food’ nature of the business to retail park visitors who might not be familiar with it and strengthen the link between local farms and farming that Turnbull’s are incredibly proud to champion.
The addition of the vintage tractor encapsulates generations of working closely with local food producers. The tractor will be paired with a trailer, which will display the best seasonal produce, like fruit & vegetables. In October, you will see the trailer piled high with pumpkins!
Turnbull’s also enlisted the help of another long-established family business, Manners Transport of Battle Bridge to provide haulage and logistics. Set up by John Manners in 1972, and now operated by sons Fraser and Richard. John Manners himself drove and operated the JCB forklift that lifted the tractor into position. Also on hand to secure the tractor into position was Christopher Bryceland of CB Iron.
All are invited to come and see this tractor on display. Turnbull’s do ask kindly that climbing or sitting on the tractor is not permitted.
