Top award for farm shop at butcher roadshow

A LOCAL farm shop has brought home the bacon after securing a top award for their produce.

Trotters Farm Shop’s butchery team, based at the shop in Potter Brompton, attended the BPEX butcher roadshow in Harrogate earlier this month and were crowned champions in the Home Cured Bacon category for their ‘Dry Cured Back Bacon’.

They also picked up seven gold and three silver awards in the event, which saw 60 butchers from across the region put 300 products to judges for expert evaluation.

Paul Bradbury, from Trotters, said: “We’ve picked up a champion title for our sausages previously, so to get one for our bacon too is a real achievement, particularly as the competition is so tough!

“We always enter with the hope of gaining gold, but it’s not just about the awards, the feedback from the judges is invaluable and helps us improve each time.”
