A SOUTH Derbyshire farm looks set to be given the go-ahead to sell alcohol in its shop after reaching an agreement with trading standards officials.

Betty's Farm, in Willington, which produces free-range eggs and attracts visitors from across the region, wants to add alcohol to its growing shop, which stocks a range of food products.

Bosses from Derbyshire County Council's trading standards department had originally raised concerns that alcohol could be served to youths.
