So What Were We Awarded?!
Treway Farm Free Range Goose – 2 Stars
The judges said…..This is a handsome goose with a fabulous layer of fat and seriously crispy skin. The fat is full-on goosey flavour, deep and intense. The breast is tender, sweet and succulent, the leg meat is stunning. We would like to make crackling with the skin – the fat is the best we’ve ever tasted – the crackling would be superb. We can imagine the potatoes roasting in the fat as it drizzles out of the bird. A corker of a goose, a magnificent bird. We can see the hard work you have put in to rear and produce it.
Our goose was the only goose to receive stars in this years awards!
Treway Farm Sirloin Steak – 2 Stars
The judges said….. An attractive steak which has browned well. The flavour is superb. Decent aged notes with soft and flavoursome fat. The meat is succulent and juicy, offering a decent chew which makes you work gently for the flavour. It’s how we like it. A really well bred animal producing a really good quality cut of meat.
Only 5 sirloin steaks were awarded 2 stars and no sirloin entries were awarded higher than 2 stars.
Treway Farm Bronze Turkey – 1 Star
The judges said …. This is an attractive bird that has coloured beautifully. The skin has a golden sheen and has crisped to perfection. The depth of natural flavour is incredible and very clean. The judges kept going back for more, which is always a good sign!
We were so delighted that the judges made such a clear link in their thoughts between the work we do on the farm rearing our livestock to the finish and flavour of the food on the plate. As a farmer there is no greater recognition than comments like this from esteemed food judges and critics.
So wether you are purchasing beef, turkey or goose from us it is all award winning. These stars join our tomahawk steak, peppercorn beef bombs and fillet steak which have all previously received awards.
On a side note the turkey and the goose were both sent into the awards frozen as they weren’t judged until April. So please never panic about eating our meat after it’s been frozen – it is award winning!
