What the Judge’s say

Pork Loin:

“This is a spectacular, well-prepared and uniform pork loin that has cooked brilliantly with a glass-like layer of crackling. The fat under the crackling is melting away and has a lovely sweetness, and isn’t chewy. The meat has retained lots of moisture, and is sweet and well-flavoured. It would be a true centrepiece, celebrating excellent meat – the judges couldn’t stop eating it.”

“The loin has a beautiful golden and crackled skin, and the layer of fat is generous and moist. The flesh is pale and juicy, What a superb piece of meat. The fat is full of flavour and the meat soft and yielding to chew, melting in the mouth and giving a satisfying length on the palate.”

Pork Belly:

“The judges are very appreciative of the welfare standards listed. This is stunning. The crackling looks enticing and the colour is fabulous. The rich, porky flavour and fat flavour come through very well and the moisture is retained well also.”


“Visually impactful, the judges felt the meat from this cockerel exhibited a good firm texture that spoke of being reared well. With great depth of flavour there’s no mistaking this for average supermarket poultry.”

We’re so proud of the achievements in this years awards, and our huge thanks go to the entire team.
