She was nominated for the award by Pennywell's owners, Chris and Nicky Murray.
Mr Murray said: "We wanted Catherine to know how much she is appreciated and respected by us, her colleagues and all the visitors to the farm.
"She heads up a young team of seasonal staff for whom she is an inspiration and always seems to be able to bring out the best of their potential.
He added: "Catherine arrives every day with her faithful boxer dog Billy and is so humble and unassuming she doesn't realise the vital contribution she makes to the regional and national popularity of Pennywell."
