Denhay Farm, at Broadoak, enjoyed a clean sweep - winning gold for each product entered in the awards, including its new dry cured smoked and unsmoked gammons.

A Honiton-based meat producer has scooped ten gold awards for its pork products in this year’s Taste of the West awards.

Denhay Farm, at Broadoak, enjoyed a clean sweep - winning gold for each product entered in the awards, including its new dry cured smoked and unsmoked gammons.

Jim Loescher, managing director of Denhay Farm, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the whole business and credit needs to be given to the dedicated team who continually produce the bacon to such a high standard. We have entered these awards every year since they started, but to have a clean sweep of golds is a record.”

At the awards, the judging panel praised Denhay Farm, which processes its meat in Honiton, for caring and loving its products.

The head judge said: “I would like all producers to look at how this company produce and deliver their products.”

Following the Taste of the West awards coup, Denhay Farm scooped a Good Pig Award, presented to Jim Loescher at the Compassion in World Farming Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards held at the Milan Expo.

The Good Pig Award was only launched in 2012 but has gained momentum with five businesses this year committing to improve the lives of pigs in the food chain.

Its work alone will positively impact on more than 85,000 pigs.
