The Guild of Fine Foods has just announced their Great Taste awards for 2023, the world’s most trusted food and drink awards.
Out of thousands of products from countries all over the world, family owned and run Oakchurch Farm Shop in rural Herefordshire achieved not just one but seven new awards to add to their existing thirty-six!
Four of Oakchurch’s awards were for their own farm beef: sirloin steak, T-bone steak, steak & kidney pie, and steak & ale pie, in addition to there their homemade raspberry sorbet, cheesy leak & potato pie and chicken & ham pie.
One of the judges commented about their sirloin steak: “An appealing looking steak that cuts easily and glistens well. Tender to chew and melts in the mouth. A quality product that packs the wow factor!”
Judged by over 100 of the most discerning palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, buyers, retailers, and producers, as well as food writers and journalists, Great Taste is the most coveted of all food and drink awards. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to an outstanding product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind tasting.
“Absolutely delighted with the news.”
We’re proud to be able to display the Great Taste Awards logo as a distinct indication of our high quality and great tasting homemade food as do many of the other local food and drink producers that you’ll find here at Oakchurch.”Nick Price, Oakchurch owner.
The local family owned and run Oakchurch Farm Shop is at Staunton-on-Wye, 10 minutes from Hereford on the A438 Brecon Road.
