A FARM shop has proved itself pick of the pie producers once again.
The pastry kings of the Ross family, who run Lawns Farm Shop at Morthen, gobbled up a tasty haul of prizes at the British Pie Awards.
Their lamb and mint took a gold award as did the flagship Lawns Farm pasty, which took second place overall.
Chicken and leek, steak and pork pies won silver awards — with the chicken and leek also being highly commended in the overall competition — and there were bronzes for the steak and cheddar and steak and stilton pies.
This year’s were the tenth annual awards held in Melton Mowbray, renowned worldwide as home of the classic pork pie.
