Awards

Our kohaku's have been winning awards at competitive koi shows, regularly beating koi imported from around the world, since 2014!

And they've regularly been winning not just against other kohaku's, but also in best in size overall classes where having beaten the other kohaku's they are then pitched against all the other varieties at their size.  And, we've also won 5 major's - these awards pretty much speak for themselves..  These are very significant achievements that hobbyists might try for years to achieve and may never get there.  These awards show the quality of kohaku we are producing, and the regularity of the best in size, and the major's shows the quality we are able to produce.

The highlight, and a life goal achieved was the Baby Champion at the 2016 All England koi show; probably the most competitive koi show in the UK and known for it's particularly tough competition for kohaku's.  Our size 2 kohaku beat the entire field of size 1 and 2 koi to achieve this award and that same year we scooped best in size 1 overall too!  And the following year, we also achieved a placing in size 3.

From 2017, our customers have been exhibiting our koi and they've been continuing the trend and achieving great results.

I've listed the awards below, with a colour coding to help you see the best in size overall (highlighted in blue), and the majors (highlighted in red).
