Have you tried our award winning pies? 31/07/2016

We're over the moon to announce that one of our gourmet pies has won two stars in the Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste Awards.

Our Subtly Spiced Mince Wagyu Pie was one of only 828 products out of 10,000 entries to be awarded the coveted two gold stars in the annual food awards that are renowned as the ‘Oscars of the food world’.

The comments from the judging panel, that comprised chefs and food writers, included: “Delicious short pastry with an excellent flavour, an edge of aromatic roasted spices, good beef with real depth of character. Develops in the mouth with great length. Very satisfying.”

Our co-founder, Jonathan Shepherd is delighted to have won two stars at the first attempt for the savoury mince pie: “We’re very proud to have won this prestigious award and can’t wait to add the coveted two star logo to our products.”

The mince pies are available from the Balloon Tree Farm Shop at Gate at Gate Helmsley, Selfridges in London and direct from The Yorkshire Wagyu Company at Field House Farm, Tibthorpe by ringing 07951 018302.  The Yorkshire Wagyu Company also produces a Wagyu Steak and Ale Pie that is available from the Balloon Tree and Field House Farm.
