Yorkshire Dales Meat Company scooped top honours in a public vote for the best sausage at the annual Camp Hill Estate Sausage & Beer Festival held near Bedale, North Yorkshire.

Yorkshire Dales Meat Company’s Pork & Caramelised Red Onion sausages finished top in the entirely independent public vote, fighting off strong competition from celebrated Bedale High Street butcher and sausage maker, Cockburn’s, who won last year, and other well-known regional butchers .

The festival, which is now in its second year, attracted over 1,500 visitors. Starting at mid day, visitors sampled the region’s finest sausages from 15 local butchers and then voted for their favourite.

The event also saw a selection of locally produced real ales, beers and lagers, including ales by Wensleydale Brewery, Black Sheep Brewery, Wall’s Brewing Company and many more.

James Knox, Managing Director at Yorkshire Dales Meat Company, said: “We’re absolutely delighted with the win. We knew we had a really good sausage but we were up against butchers deemed the best in the region.”

“This accolade has become highly sought after, so to finish top in a competition judged by the public gives us even greater confidence in our product.”

The family run business supplies a wide range of sausages, including traditional pork, chilli, wild boar and Swaledale rings, to restaurants, hotels, caterers, event venues and cafés across the North of England.

As with all Yorkshire Dales Meat Company products, the delicious sausages are made using meat sourced from trusted, high provenance suppliers.
