We are delighted to have won Great Taste 2019 Awards for its Dee Valley Bronze Organic turkey and its Dee Valley Organic Goose.

The Great Taste Awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. The Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying local food and drink.

Since 1994 more than 120,000 products have been put through the robust Great Taste Award judging process. Each product is fastidiously blind-tasted by selected chefs, buyers, fine food retailers, restaurateurs, food critics and writers over 60 judging days. Those accredited receive either three, two or one stars for their products. Rhug achieved one star for both its Dee Valley Turkey and Goose.

Lord Newborough, Owner of Rhug Estate, said, “I am pleased our organic turkey and goose have yet again achieved Great Taste Awards. These Awards are recognition of all the hard work and dedication of the entire team both on the farm and in our cutting plant. We pride ourselves on producing the best quality organic meat for our customers, whether they be in our Farm Shop, online or wholesale. The team is always striving to do better and that is how it should be.”

Rhug Organic Dee Valley Bronze Turkeys and Geese have self-basting properties under the skin. As a result, they take approximately an hour less to cook than conventional supermarket turkeys. Because they are free range, and out every day on the farm, the turkeys and geese have a better texture, and fuller flavour than birds produced any other way.

London restaurants including the Arts Club and the Four Seasons in Park Lane feature Rhug organic turkey on their festive menu. Rhug organic turkey and goose meat are also served in Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau.

Rhug customers can purchase all of our Award winning meat from the butcher’s counter in Rhug Farm Shop, near Corwen, or our butcher’s stall in Borough Market, London; online: www.rhug.co.uk or from our Wholesale team by ringing: 01490 413000.
