Butcher with golden touch

MIRFIELD butcher Shaun Fairweather scooped another five gold awards for his produce at a regional competition last week.
Shaun, who runs Shaun J Fairweather’s Traditional Family Butchers on The Knowl, won top prizes for his pork sausages, Lincolnshire sausages, pork pies, steak pies and homecured rindless back bacon at the BPEX NorthEast and Yorkshire regional roadshow.
The event took place in Harrogate, where Shaun also picked up a bronze award for his Cornish pasties.
“There were 262 entries so we were absolutely thrilled to do so well,” he said.
“I was told by a judge several months ago that we should enter more competitions, because our products were so good.
“And it’s proved excellent advice so far, we’re winning awards left, right and centre.”
