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 loved the ‘great creamy texture’ and the ‘excellent lactate flavours with good citrus notes’.

St Helen’s Farm Blossom Honey Yogurt – 1 star, 2018

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

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.
