About us

We are a multi-award winning high quality food retailer situated in the Vale of York on the A166 between Gate Helmsley and Stamford Bridge. Our motto ‘Fewer Food Miles’, ‘More Farm Yards’ encompasses everything we stand for. We pride ourselves on our ‘superfresh’ homegrown produce.

The majority of the products in our farmshop are produced on the farm, otherwise sourced from local producers throughout Yorkshire. Our home-made ready meals and fresh soups are made in the kitchen daily. The home-made scotch eggs, available from the deli, are particularly good. Enjoy the wide selection of freshly baked cakes by our award winning in-house baker, Phyllis.

This family run business has successfully grown soft fruit and vegetables for over thirty years. Its sandy soil gives a unique flavour to the produce. The Pick Your Own trail runs from June – September, and by cutting out the food miles, the varieties are chosen for their flavour, not their shelf life, resulting in a taste that is truly hard to beat.

A great day out for all the family… ‘pick your own’ in the summer, feed the animals, have fun in the children’s play area, or simply relax in the landscaped cafe garden or the newly extended cafe. We hope to see you soon. Open 7 days a week.
