A fine food shop entered 17 products into a national competition and won an award for every single one
Baird’s Farm Shop in Climping excelled in the British Pig Executive’s sausage, pie and ready meals awards by acquiring 13 golds and four silvers from the competition.
The shop was particularly proud of its sausage prizes gaining a gold standard for all five varieties – Toulouse, traditional pork, Cumberland, beef and ginger and lamb tikka.
Alison Baird, owner of the shop told the Littlehampton Gazette, “I want to thank all of our team for their hard work and attention to detail and I also want to thank all of our loyal customers who have supported us over the years, because without their continued support, none of this would be possible,” she said.
Alison’s sister Marion and her bakery team baked the pies, sausage rolls and ready meals and she was also pleased with the impressive haul of awards, amidst the friendly rivalry between the bakers and the butchery team led by Tim Porter.
“We have stiff competition here between our butchers and bakers and I’m really pleased my team pipped them this time!”
