Milford's Bacon Champion

The annual Great Hampshire Sausage and Pie Competition was held in Winchester on the 22nd February, and Dave Gates won yet another award for the Butchers Shop in Milford on Sea village. 

Organised by local not-for-profit food group Hampshire Fare, it attracted 201 entries from 38 butchers. The 13 categories included Hampshire Sausage, Hot Pie, Charcuterie and Speciality Pork Sausage.

The title of Supreme Champion 2017 went to LJ Smith Butchers. Other winners included Owtons for Lamb & Beef Sausage, The Butchers Shop (Milford) for Homecured Bacon and Tatchbury Manor Farm for Speciality Hot Eating Pie.

Tracy Nash, Commercial Manager of Hampshire Fare, commented on the event, “Today’s event is all about recognising and celebrating the talented butchers we have across Hampshire. Shopping at your local butcher’s shop is an opportunity to learn and try new things as service often comes with knowledge and experience.”
