Etherington’s Farm Shop near Redruth has scooped four gold awards and one silver at this year’s Taste of the West product awards.
Having won gold for our eco-friendly Farm Shop last month, the accolades have continued to flow, with our traditional Cornish pasty, hog’s pudding, glazed pork ribs and new product ‘Baconberg’ all being awarded gold - a delicious turkey and bacon roulade with cranberry and chestnut stuffing was also awarded silver.
New to the awards was Baconberg, a creation by our apprentice butcher Scott Buzza, which went viral via social media earlier this year.
Based on the iconic Battenberg cake, it even features the distinctive two-by-two check pattern of the sugary treat – however, Scott replaced every ingredient with meat, substituting the light sponge with loin and sausage meat, and the marzipan with bacon.
Managing Director Mark Etherington said: “To have done so well at the Taste of the West Awards is particularly pleasing as they're solely about taste, and to have so many products rated as gold is a fantastic accolade.”
Etherington’s Farm Shop will be celebrating its 5th birthday this November, and has been awarded Gold at the Taste of the West Awards for two years in a row - commended for its array of local and rare-breed meat, alongside a wide variety of local products.
Farm Shop Manager Tara O’Donnell said: “It’s fantastic to be recognised as one of the best farm shops in the South West. We are very proud of what we do here, promoting west-country producers and stocking a great range of local meat.”
Etherington’s Farm Shop is open Monday to Saturday 9am - 5pm and award-winning pastys can also be purchased online at www.etherington-meats.co.uk
