In 2006 Steve was the North East Winner of UKTV Foods Local Food Hero where the beef received high praise;

Gary Rhodes - "Beef with a flavor to die for"

Brian Turner championed Steve commenting what he does is "head and shoulders above the rest"

Our products were on national television again in 2009 on BBCs Great British Menu where both North East Contenders, Ian Matfin and Kenny Atkinson used our beef and lamb. Michelin starred Marcus Wareing was clearly very impressed with the Fillet dish served up by Ian Matfin whilst one of the judges, Oliver Peyton, described the beef as "the best beef ever presented to him in any competition".

Kenny Atkinson went on to cook his starter for the Homecoming Diner, a dish created in the judging phase using our Fillet Steak.

Wagyu beef from our farm was fetured on the BBC Hairy Bikers "Best of British" Dave and Sy spent the day on the farm and ate beef until 7pm ,a great day.

Steve and Monkridge Hill Farm also feature in Terry Laybourne's book 'A Quest for Taste' and Steve was one of Rick Stein's original Food Heroes.

Below are a selection of the awards we have previously won :
