The Great Taste Awards

GTA_WEB_-_2017_.png GTA_WEB_-_2017_-_PRODUCER.png

These awards are held every year and attract around 12,000 entries across all sorts of food and drink categories. An esteemed group of over 500 judges, including chefs, food writers, restaurateurs and others, all taste a selection of products and then award a small number of them a coveted gold star – ranked from three stars to one.

They are seen as the 'Oscars' of the food and drink world and we are pleased our products have been enjoying success at these awards for the last six years.



St Helen’s Farm Goats Butter, 2 stars, 2018
The judges loved our butter, commenting that it is ‘very smooth and creamy’ and it ‘melts away in the mouth’.

St Helen’s Farm Whole Goats Milk – 1 star, 2018
The experts were won over, commenting that our whole milk is a ‘delicious product’.

St Helen’s Farm Skimmed Goats Milk – 1 star, 2018
The judges explained how our skimmed milk is ‘fresh, slightly creamy with a mild flavour’ and liked its ‘surprising richness for skimmed milk’.

St Helen’s Farm Natural Goats Milk Yogurt, 1 star, 2018
The judges loved the ‘great creamy texture’ and the ‘excellent lactate flavours with good citrus notes’.

St Helen’s Farm Blossom Honey Yogurt – 1 star, 2018
A ‘smooth yogurt with a gentle honey flavour’ that is ‘delightful’ and ‘beautifully balanced’.

St Helen’s Farm Chocolate Ice Cream – 1 star, 2018
The judges remarked on its richness and that the ‘chocolate gives a fabulous deep colour and depth of flavour’.

St Helen’s Farm Mature Goats Cheese – 1 star, 2017
The judges explained how our cheese ‘is nicely balanced’ and ‘the texture is creamy and crumbly’ they ‘could see this grating well.’.

St Helen’s Farm Vanilla Ice Cream – 1 star, 2017
The judges felt our ice cream was ‘rich and creamy.’ They described it’s ‘lovely vanilla quality. Great length of cream and vanilla notes dancing along the taste buds’.

 

This year we were especially pleased to be certified as a Great Taste producer, awarded to companies with a proven track record of achieving Great Taste awards for a minimum of three years.

 

Cheese and Dairy Shows

Perhaps the most satisfying awards we get are when our products are tasted and judged by people who may not even know of us.

It happens each year at County Shows like the Bath and West, the Nantwich Show (home of the International Cheese Awards) and on our home patch at the Great Yorkshire Show.

Our successes in recent years include:

  • 2013 - Royal Bath & West Show in May

    Blossom Honey Yogurt – Silver

    Goats Cheese – Bronze

    The Royal seal of approval maybe?

  • 2013 - Devon Show in May

    Natural Yogurt – 1st Prize

    Blossom Honey Yogurt – 1st Prize

    Goats butter – 3rd prize

    Goats cheese – 2nd prize

    A great way to start the summer!

  • 2018 - Devon Show in May

    Goats Butter - First

    Natural Yogurt - Second

    Mild Goats' Cheese - Second

The image of the Red Tractor is a well known and respected one amongst farmers, producers and consumers.
So we are delighted that our own farms and all of our suppliers are members of this scheme which independently monitors standards of animal welfare, food safety and environmental protection.
In addition, our dairy is also accredited by the SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval) food safety standard organisation. This is a body set up to independently set and monitor food producers to ensure they are adhering to legal requirements and operating to agreed industry best practices.
