Hills is a long established family
business operating a Shop and
Butchery, a Deli and a Cafe.
Incidentally in 2012 they were named
runner up in the Butchers Shop of
the Year awards and runner up in the
2012 Observer Best Independent Food
Retailer competition. Then the
following year Gog Magog Hills do it
again and are named runner up in the
2013 Observer Best Independent Food

sausage territory but we didn't

Now don't get us wrong, these are
very well made. Why not call
in to the farm shop and pickup some
yourself to try, and then let us
know what you think.
