“Can I have more crackling…PLEASE!” as Pipers Farm of Devon wins Best Speciality from the South West

The Great Taste Golden Fork for Best Speciality from the South West has been presented to Pipers Farm of Cullompton in Devon for its ‘stupendous’ Saddleback Pork Belly. Described by one Great Taste judge as being “Melt in the mouth, can’t fault it, sticky and fabulous – it is a stupendous piece of pork”. The Saddleback Pork Belly was blind-tasted by many judges and each time they were full of praise and admiration for the quality of both the pork fat and meat.

Pipers Farm, which is a family-run farm in the rolling hills of Devon, rears animals slowly in small groups with pigs being fed on grass, windfall apples and acorns. Central to the foundation of Pipers Farm is working in harmony with the landscape or ‘terroir’ and traditional, sustainable farming values.

Out of 10,000 products entered into Great Taste 2014, Pipers Farm Saddleback Pork Belly was awarded its honour at the Great Taste Golden Forks Dinner on September 8th, where over 300 guests from the world of fine food gathered to hear the results of many months of judging.
