A west Wales farmer is attempting a fast food world record with a difference at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair next week as he aims to make 18 pigs-in-blankets in one minute.

Porc.Wales member, Graeme Carter, of Carmarthenshire-based Red Valley Farm will take to the Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales’s stand on the second day of the Fair on Tuesday, November 26, for the record attempt.

Armed with a selection of traditional sausages and bacon Graeme will attempt to break André Ortolf’s record of making 17 in one minute, set in 2016.

To be crowned champion, Graeme will have to complete each pig-in-blanket in less than three and a half seconds.

Graeme says: “Record-attempting is not pig rearing; it’s new to me and I’ve had absolutely no training, but I’m all for doing things to help put small-scale Welsh producers on the map!

“I’m excited to put my skills to the test, and in the meantime am hoping to prove to taste-testers that outdoor-reared, slow-grown pork from Wales is unrivalled”.

Pigs-in-blankets were voted the ‘Best Part of Christmas Dinner’ in a 2017 survey, but, with recent concern there could be a shortage this festive season, Porc.Wales claims the Welsh can easily stock up by shopping local.

Kirstie Jones, market development officer at HCC, said: “We want to make sure nobody cancels Christmas, so our pork producers in Wales are on hand to keep people stocked up to make sure nobody takes pigs-in-blankets off the menu.

“Our traditional farmers have shorter supply chains, meaning you’re not only supporting a local business, but contributing to a more sustainable farming environment.”
