Redhill Farm Free Range Pork celebrate 20 years 24 May

 ‘When we started out 20 years ago the first event I booked was the Lincolnshire Show.  As farmers where better to launch our Free Range Pork than our own County Show! We were the first farmer producer food stall and are proud to say that we have twice been winners of the Best Stand cup.  The Lincolnshire Show remains one of the highlights of our year’ explains Jane.

Starting from scratch selling at Farmers Markets and from a small converted outbuilding on the farm, Redhill Farm now boasts a purpose built farm shop, butchery and smoke house alongside its new Farm Shop in the Bail in Lincoln.

‘Looking back over the past 20 years there are some really stand out moments’ explains Jane.  ‘We had great fun filming on the farm with BBC Countryfile and the moment when our Pork Pies were selected for the hampers at Lord’s Cricket 9 years ago was incredibly exciting!  We have gone on to supply Wimbledon, the drivers lounge at Silverstone and many other iconic British events annually since then.  The ultimate accolade however has to be winning the Great Taste Awards ‘Fine Food Oscar’ for the region in 2014.’

Born from the need to save their farm as the UK market was flooded with low quality imported meat, Jane and Terry always knew that Redhill Farm needed to stand out from the crowd by doing everything to the highest standard possible and this is true now more than ever.

Jane explains ‘Our ethos is to commit the extra time, skill and expense to achieve the quality we are aiming for, from high welfare farming to our authentic hand-made produce.  This remains firmly at the heart of everything we do.’

Looking to the future Jane and Terry have new products in the pipeline and are enjoying bringing the next generation of Tomlinson into the business with son George managing the Farm Shop in the Bail.  Having started out producing free range pork, Redhill Farm now offers grass-fed beef and lamb alongside free range eggs all produced on the farm.  Continental style charcuterie developed by George will soon be appearing in the Farm Shops having already been awarded a Great Taste Award of its own.

Once again Jane will be demonstrating in the Lincolnshire Kitchen on both days of the show.  ‘As this is a special year I’m planning to share with visitors my all-time favourite recipe – pork fillet wrap – a dish that looks and tastes impressive yet is so easy and quick to prepare.  Visitors will be able to see how to prepare the dish then visit our retail stand in the Food Court to pick up a kit.’
