They have a stunning farm shop, great supply of fruit and veg, home baked cakes, cheese and air cured meats. As well as a cafe with some of the best brunch food ever, like fried chicken waffle stacks (prepare to be very full).
They allow dogs outside.
Also you can feed their pigs, and they do Alpaca experiences.
TANCRED FARM SHOP
Distance - 20 minutes drive
This is a family run farm that specialises in fresh fruit and veg and have a huge butcher counter with an arrangement of fine meats. They also have a casual cafe that does a mean full English breakfast. They breed their own pigs, and do hog roasts. Let us know if you want to book one, as we can help arrange it. The pork is out of this world.
POOL BRIDGE FARM SHOP
Harrogate - 25 minutes
If you are serious about steak. This is the best steak you will find anywhere, they rear their own cows. People travel from Leeds to get their steak from here, it’s well priced and beyond excellent quality. The rib eye is particularly amazing.
The lady here also does daily slow cooked meat sandwiches and a range of home made cakes - her chocolate orange cheesecake is a must. If you are lucky you may see one of her peacocks wandering around.
