    Many thanks for mentioning our Smoked Chicken! I too am delighted, especially now that all our product have received an award from The Guild of Fine Food!There are many awards springing up around the world, and whilst on the one hand it is inspiring to get an award, there is a danger that it could water down the significance of some of the more established “gongs”.For small producers in particular, the cost of submitting entries is relatively high and does deter many form entering.

    It must be difficult, Anthony – when do you decide an entry is worth submitting and why? We’ve been telling all the customers about your awards but I don’t think we need to persuade too many people about the quality of the smoked chicken!
