Drewton’s Farm Shop wins through to national finals of Best Steak Pie competition

Published: 16/03/2015

Drewton's Farm Shop's homemade steak and caramelised onion pie has secured a place in the finals of the 2015 England's Best Steak Pie competition run by EBLEX, the organisation for beef and lamb levy payers in England.

To secure its place in the final, the pie won a Gold Award and was also one of the highest scoring products in the Retail category. The EBLEX Quality Standard Mark Excellence Awards will take place at The Underglobe in London on Wednesday 22 April 2014, when a winner will be chosen from finalists in the Retail category and the overall winner of the 'England's Best Steak Pie' title will be announced.

The pies are baked fresh each day by the team in Drewton's Farm Shop's in-house bakery, using meat sourced from Yorkshire farms and prepared by its own team of butchers.

Proprietor Katie Taylor said: "The Best Steak Pie competition attracts thousands of entries from farm shops and butchers all of the country, so we're thrilled that one of our products has been singled out in this way and very excited to be attending the awards ceremony later this month. Wish us luck!"

The exciting news follows Drewton's Farm Shop's recent success at the Goole and Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards last month, where it was named Overall Business of the Year for 2015.

Two years ago, the farm shop's sausage rolls were named the best in the country at the annual awards ceremony organised by BPEX, which represents pig levy payers in England. The announcement caused a dramatic surge in sausage roll sales and Katie is hoping that news of the latest award shortlisting will have a similar effect on steak and caramelised onion pie sales.

She joked: "When our sausage rolls were named the best in the country, sales went through the roof as people who'd not bought one before clamoured to try them. I think we'd better give our butchers and bakers advance warning this time, just in case the same thing happens with our steak pies! However, the most important thing for us is that our regular customers already know how good they are and give us great feedback."
