Redhill Farm wins Great Taste Golden Fork 30 Sep

In addition to winning three of the coveted 3 Star Awards, Redhill Farm were also awarded the ultimate accolade The Golden Fork from the Midlands for their Free Range Shoulder of Pork, one of only 7 handed out from almost 13,000 entries. Joining the judges and other nominees on the red carpet in London for the Awards ceremony Jane commented ‘A Great Taste 3 Star is incredibly hard to come by and has been likened to a Michelin Star for food, so for us to be awarded 3 of them is very rare and a fantastic surprise. To be topped off with our Fine Food Oscar really does make all the hard work worthwhile!’

The Great Taste Awards judging process is as robust as it gets and puts taste at its heart. Seen by many as the most credible accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers, entries go through hours of blind tasting by over 500 of the most demanding palates. 2019 saw almost 13,000 entries with fewer than 3% deemed to be worthy of 3 stars. Judges described Redhill Farm Lincolnshire Haslet as ‘lifting the humble to gourmet heights’ whilst the Free Range Pork Shoulder was simply referred to as ‘the perfect pork joint’.

Jane adds ‘we are proud to have achieved Great Taste recognition year on year, and winning this year is very special, coinciding with our 20th Anniversary. For us success in national awards is an important way to benchmark our produce and prove quality, but our focus always remains on our farm, our produce and our customers. Our aim now is to reinforce the message that national award winning produce is available right here in Lincolnshire and to encourage people to eat less meat but to eat the best quality.
