Few pleasures in life rival sinking your teeth into a golden, flaky meat pie on a chily winter's day.
The humble meat pie is as synonymous with Kiwism as the Christmas pavlova, Vogel's or a summer barbecue. So it goes without saying, that when it came to scouting out the nation's very best pie, we took our quest to the people.
Where to begin with these magnificently meaty morsels? Lake Farm Pies boast the best take-home variety of pie available, with their online offering an absolute saving grace come chilly winter days. Each award-winning pie is crafted with love, using a tried and true farm-to-table ethos. With 18 flavoursome combinations to choose from, like Classic NZ Prime Mince with Aged Gouda, we're Lake Farm loyal to the core
Breeding and growing their own happy, stress-free cows and packing their pies with lots of beef are two of the secrets of Lake Farm Pies' delicious creations.
The driving force behind Lake Farm is an Artisan breeder from Cambridge who has won numerous awards at the Beef and Lamb's Steak of Origin Awards (including being named 'Grand Champion' twice); he aims to make the best pies on the planet. Partnering with award winning cheese makers Meyer Gouda Cheese from Hamilton Lake Farm's new recipes reimagine some great Kiwi classics. Genius! There are 18 varieties of beef pies, including exotic creations and special Limited Edition pies.
All of the beef used in their pies has been bred, born and raised on their property. It’s very much a provenance story – from conception to consumption. Now you know exactly where the beef in your pie comes from, that it's award winning and comes from animals who have lead an idyllic and stress-free life on Lake Farm.
