Award Winning - Heather Fed Lamb Racks
We are absolutely delighted to announce that our Heather Fed Lamb Racks have been awarded 3stars in this years (2012) Great Taste Awards and even more impressively have made it into the prestigious "Top 50 Foods in Britain". We have now been nominated for the "Golden Fork Awards - Best Speciality Product From the North of England" and the overall "2012 Great Taste Supreme Champion" which will be announced on the 3rd September at the Great Taste Presentation Dinner.
For those of you who don't know about the great taste awards they are like the oscars of the food industry and are the most trusted and recognised food and drink awards. Held by the Guild of fine foods each food entered receives feedback from a panel of over 300 judges, helping you improve and refine your food even if it is not awarded a coveted star. This year over 8800 food and drink products were entered so it is a massive achievement to be nominated in the top 50.
The Lamb we use for our Heatherfed Range is taken from hefted flocks of Dalesbread and Swaledale lambs that feed on the natural heather and gorse high up on the fells in the Forest of Bowland a little known desginated area of outstanding beauty. The terroir, diet, and exercise the Lambs get up on the fells gives the meat incredible flavour which when aged and butchered correctly creates a stunning product as the judges found out.
