Mirfield butcher Shaun picks up prize for his pork pies

MIRFIELD butcher Shaun Fairweather collected another award for his quality pies earlier this month.

Shaun, who runs Shaun J Fairweather’s Traditional Family Butchers on The Knowl, was awarded third prize in the large pork pie class at the 2010 Great Yorkshire Pork Pie, Sausage and Products Competition.

The annual competition in Bradford, organised by the Confederation of Yorkshire Butchers Councils, attracted 300 entries from 50 butchers across the county.

Last year Shaun took gold for his family steak pie at the National Supreme Product Championship and his pork pies and Lincolnshire sausages also picked up silver awards.

Shaun is pictured left with his sons Jack, eight, and twoyearold Sam receiving his Great Yorkshire Butchers competition trophy from the Yorkshire Butchers Council’s president George Haigh.
