Eight Gold Awards for Greenfield Pork
Hampshire Fare member, Greenfield Pork entered eight free range pork products in the British Pig Executive Roadshow Awards and came away with eight gold awards!
Martin Martindale from the family-run pork business won five gold awards for his sausages with the King Alfred Traditional Pork Sausage taking the title of Best Sausage at the competition. Martin and his team also won Gold Award Speciality Pork Product for their chorizo, Gold Award Ready Meal for their pork faggots and Gold Award Bacon product for their cured back bacon.
Martin Martindale commented on their win: 'It was a great team effort and we are delighted that Greenfield got the Best Sausage in the South East Award and it will take us forward to the Champion of Champions for the fourth time and a chance of winning the Best Sausage in the UK Award. We will be going all out until we achieve the Best in Britain.'
Greenfield Pork Products is operated from 20 acres of arable land near Andover. Since 1990 Martin, his wife, son and their butchers have been producing free-range pork, bacon and sausages. All their pigs are born and reared outside in spacious paddocks.
Greenfield Pork has been part of the Hampshire Farmers' Markets since the very beginning, with their Hog Roasts proving to be very popular with market visitors. Martin said: 'We have never missed a Hampshire Farmers' Market since the first one in 1998. Being part of the markets has helped us cope with the fluctuating market price of pork and has given us a retail market which has helped us to survive and also to grow our Hog Roast business.'
The Greenfield Pork stand selling fresh pork products and their popular Hog Roast, attends Hampshire Farmers' Markets at Winchester, Andover, Petersfield, Romsey, Southsea each month, as well as annual food festivals at Cosham and the Alresford Watercress Festival in May. Their hog roast service is also very much in demand for private and corporate events.
Greenfield Pork is one of the twenty-five entrants to our Great Hampshire Sausage & Pie Competition taking place on Tuesday 9 April 2013.
