Hi we're the Jalland family, and not only are we farmers, but we're also dedicated pie-makers - in fact, we make around 10, 000 pies every week!

We travel to approximately 2, 500 events every year, selling pies, demonstrating how to make pies, and most importantly championing local produce. Despite the enormous growth, we continue to farm cattle to make our delicious steak pies.

Our pies have won over 30 accolades at the annual British Pie Awards, have been recommended by the Pierateers, and have been featured in numerous publications and television programmes. We’re extremely proud to produce more pies than anyone else in the Borough of Melton while remaining family-owned and still supporting local farmers and producers.

Let us share our pie-making secrets with you!

Brilliant class. Claire was interesting and full of local knowledge. I have done a review on TripAdvisor but has definitely inspired us to visit again. Pies are fantastic

Fantastic atmosphere with lots of fun. The ladies were so helpful especially with an in experienced cook. The experience was great and I’d recommend it to anyone and everyone. You also got to learn historic facts of Melton Mowbray and the history of characters from here too. A great experience I’d want to do again or progress to a higher one to learn more.

Fantastic! Our teacher was very good and we learnt loads about the history of pork pies and Melton Mowbry. Facilities great and the afternoon tea was a great touch. Looking forward to baking my pie for Christmas.
