In early 2017, The Farm Shop in Great Ayton closed and after much consultation with the necessary parties, the decision to open our very own farm shop was made. This decision was made based on the proviso that we were to do something unique and thus focused efforts on dairy produce and frozen meats as appose to the traditional butchery due to there already being two butchers in the village.
The shop itself is made from a refurbished shipping container which has been placed in one of our old cow sheds, in keeping with our rustic farm roots.
The reasoning behind doing this is because of the working farm we run along side our other ventures. With us now rearing and producing our own home reared lamb and pork and working closely with the local Stokesley Butchers who process our meat and purchase excess stock from us. Our Sausages, burgers lamb loin, leg and shoulder are all frozen fresh on the day of processing as supply is limited. We hope to expand our range as the farm continues to grow.
The shop also stocks produce such as milk, yoghurt, butter, cream and cheese as well as local free range eggs, deli style meats, artisan breads, fresh fruit and veg, home-baked cakes, Jams, pickles and preserves, and frozen produce including pick ‘n’ mix fruit/veg, pastries and ready meals. There is also a range of non-food products including toys/gifts, plants and pet/animal feed.
We are continuing to look for more local suppliers of Farmers Markets to promote in store and supply in our shop please get in touch if you have products to sell we would love to hear from you.
