Both winners achieved outstanding results. Hurford achieved an exceptional bactoscan result of 7.58 and a cell count of 68.83, while Dennis achieved a bactoscan result of 7.41 and a very low cell count result of 34.91.
Second place was awarded to the Morrow family from Truro, Cornwall (more than 500,000 litres per year) and Symes Partners from Crewkerne, Somerset (less than 500,000 litres per year).
Third place was awarded to the Cockburn family from Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria (more than 500,000 litres per year) and the Burden family from Launceston, Cornwall (less than 500,000 litres per year).

We would like to congratulate all the finalists who have demonstrated that consistent attention to detail is the key to success.”
