The best sausage rolls in the country are made here in East Yorkshire!

Published: 23/04/2013

It’s official – Drewton’s Farm Shop near South Cave makes the best sausage rolls in the whole of the UK!

Judges at the national BPEX Food Service ‘Pork Product of the Year’ awards in London named the East Yorkshire farm shop’s sausage rolls the overall winner of the Pork Bakery Product category for 2013 at an awards ceremony last Friday.

Last month, Katie Taylor, who owns and runs Drewton’s Farm Shop, learned that her homemade sausage rolls, pork pies and Breakfast Mushrooms (stuffed with Yorkshire sausage meat and wrapped in bacon) had all achieved a Gold award in the annual contest, which attracts thousands of entries from butchers, delis and farm shops across the UK and is run by BPEX (British Pig Executive), a division of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board.

Katie was also thrilled to learn that her sausage rolls, which are made in-house by Head Baker Kath Brown using sausage meat from Yorkshire farms prepared by Head Butcher John Lund had been shortlisted for the top prize. This meant that her sausage rolls were pitted against other Gold award-winning products from all over the country to determine which was the best Pork Bakery Product. Kath Brown and Hellen Dimmock, Delicatessen Manager, attended the Awards Lunch at Butcher’s Hall in London on Friday 19 April when the overall winner was announced.

Katie said: “I’m thrilled for Kath, John, Hellen and the rest of the team; our sausage rolls and other homemade goods are a real team effort. Kath bakes them fresh every day using sausage meat that John and his team in the Butcher department have prepared, all of which comes from farms here in Yorkshire. We were delighted to win three Gold awards for our pork products, but to walk away from the awards ceremony on Friday with the very top award was the icing on the cake!

“The Pork Product of the Year awards are highly regarded in the industry and attract entries from all over the country, so it’s a huge honour.”
