Our Journal

    Practice makes perfect..

    I love our new look website and was really excited to have it include a journal page so i can talk about our butchers shop in all its glory. Now that we have christmas out of the way it only seems right to firstly talk about our newest award.

    Just before christmas we entered a few products into a meat industry competition, (if you knew my husband you would know he never has been one to blow his own trumpet). Both me and Chris – our youngest son – used to pester power to get him to enter. On the day of the competition we were under quite a lot of pressure – long term staff illness – thats another story (the woe’s of a small business owner,) but we sent Rich off with faggots, pork pies, black pudding, sausage etc. If anyone can remember going to the old fashioned ‘garden holders shows’ of the past then you can picture his delight when he returned a few hours later.

    After judging to find Golds and Silvers next to his products!  The best was yet to come as he was to find out anything with a ‘gold’ award was then put forward to be classed as best in the area, our being the East Midlands (which to my mind is a BIG area).

    Reader, he won! It is official we not only make the best faggots in north notts, we make the best faggots to be had in the whole East Midlands!

    There you have it, goes to prove if you love your product and are proud of your wares, you should shout about it. Dont think there will be any stopping us now.

    Watch this space.
