Dreams have come true for a Rutland farmer turned pie maker.

June Titterton-Fox, who runs a micro farm in Whitwell, has been awarded two stars in the Great Taste awards for ‘The Rutland Pork Pie’.

The Great Taste award, recognised as a stamp of excellence and actively sought out by food lovers and retailers, is organised by the Guild of Fine Food and involves expert judges blind taste testing thousands of products.

Described as “being beautifully made, with an artisanal appearance”, June’s pork pie was a big hit with the judges.

June said: “I have dreamt of this moment and am so proud to be adding the iconic black and gold Great Taste logo to our Pork Pie.”

Made with the shoulder and belly pork from June’s outdoor rare breed large black pigs, the pie was among the 1,237 products to get two stars out of the 14,000 tested.

June’s Farm started from her desire to become self -sufficient and follow in the steps of the BBC series ‘The Good Life’.

“I only started making pork pies at the beginning of this year from my rare breed pork so to be where I am today is just wonderful,” said June.

“Being recognised with a Great Taste two-star means so much to independent producers such as myself, as it makes all the hard work and determination worth it.

“Great Taste is the most recognised accolade for taste and quality in the food and drink world, so it really is a big win.”
