North Acomb a family farm. Robin and Caroline Baty run a working farm and look after all aspects of the day-to-day running. The farm shop was started in 1978 selling surplus eggs from Caroline’s free range hens from the back door porch. Soon after, customers were requesting North Acombs’ own produced green top milk and cream, after seeing the dairy herd in the field, so these products were also sold. Requests continued to come for additional fresh produce, such as cakes, scones etc, then the meat soon followed. Robin was lucky to know two butchers in the wholesale meat trade who guided him at the start in the art and skill of butchery. He continued to learn from customers requests for example lamb racks, guard of honour and crowns etc and developed his very own legendary sausage and black pudding seasoning recipe. Since then North Acomb Farmshop has gone from strength to strength with a wide product range of meats, home-baking produce and more, with many loyal customers coming from the local area as well as far afield. The shop has become members of the Aberdeen Angus Cattle Society, Guild of Master Craftsmen, the National Federation of Meat and Food Traders and FARMA.
North Acomb also boasts first class livery stables for horses; additionally if customers come and visit the farm, happy and healthy cattle, sheep, pigs, dogs, peacocks, and guinea fowl are always seen.
Aberdeen Angus Beef
North Acomb has gained a great reputation for the finest quality beef, and is a member of Aberdeen Angus Cattle Society. Most of the beef sold in the shop is reared on North Acomb’s green pastures with extra supplies sourced from Grantown-on-Spey, Aberdeen shire. The beef is butchered on the farm, it is then hung and cut to your requirements.
Tender Succulent Lamb
The majority of our lamb is home-bred, reared and fattened at North Acomb.
Half of which is home-reared in a large open straw barn (situated in front of the shop car park) or free range from Grantown-on-Spey, Aberdeenshire. It is of the highest quality and makes succulent pork joints, chops, Robins own recipe sausages and burgers as well as dry cured gammon and bacon.
Free Range Poultry
Free Range and Barn Reared Chickens are available year round as are Gressingham Ducks. At Christmas we specialise in Free Range, traditionally reared Turkeys, Geese and Chickens.
Local Wild Game
Game from Bywell Estates and the North of England is prepared on-site at North Acomb and is readily available in season: This includes partridges, pheasant, ducks, rabbits and venison.
For that special occasion; joints of meat and specially prepared cuts are available. These include Crown and Guards of Honour, Racks of Lamb, a full selection of Aberdeen Angus Beef on the Bone and Racks of Pork. Please ring the farm directly for advice on what you require.
For special gatherings we also roast joints of gammon and beef in addition to pickled tongue and turkey breast which can be left whole or sliced and decorated on a platter for buffets. Again, please ring the farm directly for advice.
