The bakery and retail shop, which sells pork pies, sausages and dried cured bacon, has won the competition four times previously, before taking a break last year to form part of the judging team.

Farmhouse Fare’s Janet Green and Rob Ogden collected the Moule Media Trophy. Janet said: “We’ve kept the same recipe over the years, so it’s a very traditional pie. We also ensure we always use the same high quality local meat. We’re over the moon again – it’s a family business and the winning pies are exactly the same as the ones we sell in the shop.

Robinson’s Farm Shop in Score Hill, Northowram, Halifax was named the traditional pork pie class winner and also became overall reserve champions. Last year’s pork pie champions, Ingfield Farm Shop in Southowram, near Halifax, were also crowned champions for their sausage roll.

As part of the event, money was raised for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope and Brooklands School, Skipton. Pork pies, sausage rolls and Scotch eggs were just some of the products donated and auctioned off to generous bidders.

The competition ran alongside the 2015 Christmas primestock shows at Skipton Auction Mart.
