Following a record-breaking 12,772 entries judged over 75 days, Great Taste, the world’s most revered food and drink awards, has reached its grand finale for 2019. The Great Taste Golden Fork for the best food or drink from the Midlands was presented to Redhill Farm Free Range Pork from Gainsborough for its “super succulent” Free Range Shoulder of Pork, produced from the family-run farm’s own herd of free range Duroc cross pigs.  


The Great Taste judges swooned over this product’s wonderful fat content, crisp crackling and deep flavour, agreeing that “this must have been a happy pig”, as the Free Range Shoulder of Pork impressed at every stage of the blind-tasted judging process. Rising to the top among hundreds of other entries from the Midlands, the pork was celebrated as the best tasting product in its region at the Great Taste Golden Fork Dinner held on Sunday 1 September at the InterContinental Park Lane Hotel, London, where over 350 guests from the world of fine food gathered to discover this year’s stars of food and drink.
