THE pie’s the limit for a Selby butcher who has made it third time lucky by claiming a national award.

JA Mounfield & Son picked up the prize for its 1lb Traditional Pork Pie at the final of the BPEX Butcher Regional Roadshow and Product Evaluation Events.

It was the third time in a row the family business, run by David Mounfield, had made it to the final, with their reward for winning being an original watercolour painting of a Gloucester Old Spot pig.

“We are absolutely over the moon – to get the national title is the icing on the cake, particularly after being pipped to the post previously, so we couldn’t be happier,” said David.
