Farm’s tasty triumphs
8:00am Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
A FARM near Moreton has scooped six prizes in the Great Taste Awards 2013.
Todenham Manor Farm wowed the judges as it was awarded a mix of one and two coveted gold stars for its pedigree beef and rare breed pork products.
Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the benchmark for speciality food and drink and involved more than 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting.
Irayne Paikin, aged 47, started the farm as a hobby after buying a dilapidated Manor House in Todenham with her husband eight years ago.
“We are continually trying to improve our products and this year’s results have given us the outcome that we were hoping for,” she said.
“I’m pleased for the team that work in the butchery and for Barry Clark who breeds and rears the animals with the utmost integrity. We do exactly as we say on the label and the product speaks for itself,” she said.
This year nearly 10,000 products were blind-tasted by panels of specialists including top chefs, cookery writers, food critics, restaurateurs and fine food retailers.
Todenham Manor Farm’s products can be bought at Warner’s Budgens, Moreton, The Cotswold Food Store, Burford Garden Company along with the ‘Toast of the Cotswolds’ in Bourton.
