East Yorkshire Farmers win National Great Taste Awards

Posted by Wold Top Brewery on

As Yorkshire Day approaches (1st August), two East Yorkhire farm diversification businesses are celebrating after winning prestigious national awards from the?Guild of Fine Food (30-07-08).? Side Oven Bakery from Foston on the Wolds has been awarded a coveted two star

Gold Great Taste Award for its Organic Unbleached White Flour and one for its Organic Elderflower Cordial, whilst Wold Newton based Wold Top Brewery has added a two star award for its Wold Gold Light Beer to its impressive array of awards.

Celebrating its 15th anniversary, The Great Taste Awards are often referred to as the Oscars of the food industry and represent the authoritative, independent standard for Britain?s fine food sector.? They also help to promote business for winners and have generated over ?2.6 million additional sales and 19,900 new listings over the last five years.

The Side Oven Bakery also won one star awards for its Organic Wholemeal and Malted Granary Flours that are produced using home grown organic wheat that is stone ground using a traditional mill at the Sellers Carr House Farm. Commenting on the award, farmer Caroline Sellers said ?We are naturally delighted to win such prestigious awards .? There are entries from over 4800 small producers over all of the categories and only 1150 Golds awarded.? Of these only 19% achieved 2 stars, so we?ve done exceptionally well to win two two star and two one star awards.? We?re having an open day on 24th August and urge people to come and see the mill making the award winning flours?

Gill Mellor from Wold Top Brewery is equally delighted; ?This is the fourth award that we have won for our light, summer beer, Wold Gold, but the first time that we have won a Guild of Fine Food award.? Given how rigourous the judging process is, we are proud to have won and to have put East Yorkshire on the brewing map.?

From humble beginnings in the 'side oven' of its farmhouse kitchen, The Side Oven Bakery uses largely home grown, organic ingredients to produce an exclusive range of hand crafted artisan breads, flours, honey toasted mueslis and premium fruit juices in a bespoke bakery and juicery .

Made from the finest hops and home grown malting barley coupled with the purest, chalk-filtered Wolds water, Wold Top Brewery real ales are brewed with passion from traditional recipes.? They are? available? through the website?www.woldtopbrewery.co.uk, farm shops, delis, hotels, pubs and off licences throughout Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.? Wold Top Brewery will be at the three day Yorkshire Day Festival that takes place at Harewood House from 1st to 3rd August.

The award winning East Yorkshire produce is available through the websites?www.sideoven.com andwww.woldtopbrewery.co.uk and from farmers? markets, farm shops and delis throughout Yorkshire.
