Croots Farm Shop celebrates British Pie Award accolade

Popular Derbyshire farm shop Croots is celebrating winning an award at the annual British Pie Awards.



The new Croots Steak, Mushroom and Cracked Black Peppercorn Pie took the reserve champion award in the beef and vegetable pie category.

Croots Farm Shop is no stranger to winning awards for its extensive range of home-made pies which it sells in its shop, based in Wirksworth Road, Duffield.

This latest accolade was awarded during British Pie Week at the annual British Pie Awards, held in Melton Mowbray – the rural capital of food – and hosted by the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association.

Kay Croot, who runs the farm shop, said: “We were thrilled to win the reserve champion award for our new Croots Steak, Mushroom and Cracked Black Peppercorn Pie at the British Pie Awards, narrowly being pipped at the post by the Champion pie. 

“The British Pie Awards are the crème de la crème of pie awards and we’ve previously won gold medals for our Steak and Ale Pie and Croots Mince Pies there. The Croots Steak, Mushroom and Cracked Black Peppercorn Pie is a relatively new pie but it’s fast becoming a big favourite with our customers, and we’re delighted that it hit the spot with the award judges too.”

The Croots Steak, Mushroom and Cracked Black Peppercorn Pie is freshly made on the premises at Croots by the bakery team, using top quality locally reared meat.

The British Pie Awards are a national celebration of British pies in all their varieties and they have been running since 2009.

Croots opened in 2008 and sells a range of home-made and locally produced food and drink, as well as items from further afield.

Based at Farnah House Farm, it is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm, and on Sundays from 10am to 4pm, with the café open from 9am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and on Sunday between 10am and 3pm.
