Extracted from a widely circulated Press release from the manufacturers (Brockleby's)
"The first organic Melton Mowbray pork pie is being launched at two of the year's most prestigious food festivals.

Brockleby's Organic Pork Pie is the first authentic Melton Mowbray pork pie to be granted official organic status by the Soil Association.

This special pie is made using organic pork from Saddleback pigs raised by farmer Richard Mee at Oakley Grange Farm in Stathern, Leicestershire. Brockleby's, based in Asfordby Hill, Melton Mowbray, makes its own lard and the pie's succulent jelly is created from the trotters of the same rare-breed Saddlebacks. The filling for the pie is made using fresh, not cured, pork which is coarsely chopped, not minced in keeping with a traditional recipe.

The robust, crunchy pastry is made from organic unbleached white flour, which is ground at Whissendine Windmill in Leicestershire.

Brockleby's Organic Pork Pie will be launched at the Soil Association Organic Food Festival, at Bristol Harbourside, on September 1 and 2 and at the Speciality and Fine Food Fair at London's Olympia Exhibition Centre from September 2 to 4. The pie is being retailed throughout Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire and is available nationally on a wholesale basis."
