Our county has some of the best butchers and bakers in the country and this year a tremendous 440 entries were taken for the 2014 Lincolnshire Poacher Competition.

This bi-annual competition, organised by Lincolnshire County Foods (LCF), has seen consistent growth of 20% for entries for each of the two most recent judgings, in 2012 and now 2014. How much more indicative could this be of the vibrant range of independent butchers and bakers we have locally and how keen they are to compare their products with the finest that the rest of Lincolnshire has to offer?

The event has been held every two years since 1990, and offers Gold, Silver and Bronze awards for such classic local delicacies as Lincolnshire sausage, stuffed chine, pork pie, plum bread and haslet, as well as national dishes including bacon, steak pies, lamb burgers, speciality sausages and Innovations, which includes vegetarian and non-meat pastry products.

A champion product is selected by the judges of each of the fourteen categories, and the winning items were displayed at the Food and Drink Fair in the Epic Centre on the Lincolnshire Showground at the end of November.

Lincolnshire Life attended the presentation evening earlier in the month to capture the winners and their awards.

Butchers also compete across the board for a trophy and the title of Champion Lincolnshire Butcher 2014/16. This year the overall award went to Gary Simpson of G Simpson Butchers in Heckington.
