BRITAIN’S biggest family revealed their pie shop business has boomed so much during the pandemic that they’ve forked out for a huge new site.
Noel Radford, 50, from Lancashire, uploaded a tour on the family’s YouTube channel showing their whopping new space.
Speaking on the vlog, dad-of-22 Noel said: “We are finally in the new bakery, it’s been a long time coming.
“It’s taken us ever so long to get in here and up and running.
“The Radford Pie Company sign is up so thought I’d give you a little showaround and show you some of the machines here and what they do, and how we run our operation here.”
Noel showed where all of the deliveries come in and out – and also where the pies are individually wrapped ready to be posted.
The Radfords famously run their bakery to make ends meet and don’t rely on benefits – and the business is a family affair with numerous kids helping out.
Noel said: “This is where Luke works, he boxes all the orders up along here.”
The bakery also has two cold rooms which Noel showed were full of pies that had been made.
Meat and potatoes are cooked in a bratt pan, and Noel explained: “It can fit enough steak in there to make 240 pies. That takes about two hours to cook.
“That machine is on from when we come in the morning to pretty much an hour before we go home.”
He also showed where his son Jack uses a machine to add pastry into pie shells.
Noel explained: “You fill a trolley of empty pie shells, it takes about 15 minutes and it makes around 300 pies.
“Chloe will then fill the pies and I’m on the pastry roller, I’ll do all the lids once it’s got its filling in.”
Flavours range from chicken to veggie, costing £3.65 for small pies to £17.50 for a family-sized portion.
The pie shop is located close to the family’s home, and on the website, it says: “We have owned our own lovely bakery since 1999 which is how we manage to provide for (and feed) our huge and expanding family as well as for the local people of Heysham and Morecambe.”
