The Lincolnshire Food and Drink Awards 2013

Select Lincolnshire presented thirteen awards to stars of the county’s food and drink industry at a glittering black tie dinner held at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Lincoln last month.
Guests were served canapés before entering the ballroom where a five course dinner featuring local produce was served. Producers who contributed towards the meal included Abbey Parks, Red Hill Free Range Pork, Boston Sausage, Belleau Trout Farm and Skidbrooke Cyder.

The Select Lincolnshire awards were presented by Mary Powell, tourism development manager for Lincolnshire County Council and Cllr Eddy Poll, deputy leader of Lincolnshire County Council.

FURTHER ACCOLADE FOR REDHILL FARM
It has been an exhilarating time for Jane and Terry Tomlinson, founders and directors of Redhill Farm Free Range Pork. As well as being voted joint winners of The Lincolnshire Cooperative People’s Choice Award they have also been selected by Jamie Oliver to supply their award winning Free Range Pork Pies for his British Tapas menu at his new Union Jacks bar at Gatwick Airport. Jamie’s team visited the Freedom Food Accredited farm, which is located near Gainsborough, last year and went away delighted with what they saw and how their company ethos fits with the Jamie Oliver ethos.
The success of Redhill Farm is based on simple artisan principles where everything from the ethical animal husbandry to every stage of the production process results in pork of proven quality with genuine provenance on the small, family owned farm.
