Owton's is famed locally for champion homemade sausages such as the Corporal Jones Wartime Recipe sausage, and their black pudding has been named Hampshire's best three years running. The butchers have also been honoured for their 30 day dry-cured bacon, previously winning a 2 star Great Taste Award, Gold in the Hampshire Fayre Sausage and Pie Competition and a Diamond Award from the Q Guild.
Three of Owton's home-made meat products have earnt stars in the Great Taste Awards. Owton’s Traditional Faggots and its Chalcroft Farm Burger both received two stars which means judges agreed they were “above and beyond delicious”. And Owton’s Black Pudding received one star for delivering “fantastic flavour”. All three products impressed the judges with their balance of seasoning and spices and that, says Owton’s director John Harding, is the secret to their success.
Wicor Primary School - a local school that Garsons support through various activities and projects joined forces with Owton's and have created a sausage using an ingredient foraged from the school grounds - available to purchase at Owton's Garsons Titchfield - find out more about this community project here.
