Fife farm's gluten-free sausages shortlisted for award

A Fife farm’s gluten-free sausages have been shortlisted for an accolade at the Free From Food Awards 2021.

Based in Auchtertool, Puddledub is renowned for its homegrown pork, hand-linked sausages and dry-cured bacon all produced on the Fife farm.

The Free From Food Awards is the UK’s only award for free from food and drink, celebrating the very best in free from. Food and drinks that win this award are seen as benchmarks in the business; small producers and supermarkets compete on a level playing field for one of the coveted awards.

Tom Mitchell, farmer and director at Puddledub, said: “We feel privileged to have our sausages recognised at the prestigious Free From Awards. For us it is important to make a range of gluten-free products that taste great, our gluten-free honey and mustard sausages are a firm favourite with our customers and not just those that don’t eat gluten. It is a real honour to be recognised along with some of the best producers in the UK.”

Puddledub's gluten-free honey and mustard pork sausages are finalists in the Artisan producer category. The winners of the Free From Food Awards will be announced at the end of May.

The shortlisting comes after Puddledub launched online masterclasses last month to take the monotony out of mealtimes.

The masterclasses were filmed in a straw shed at the farm to provide some inspiration to brighten up mealtimes.

The farm has High Street stores in Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline, and its butchers are often asked for advice on how to cook their products.

Puddledub is based at Clentrie Farm in Auchtertool.
