“We’ve been a member of Deliciously Yorkshire since we opened the farm shop and café in 2007. The team have been a massive support in terms of advice, workshops and networking and DY has played an important role in our growth over the years. The publicity that we have received from winning DY Taste Awards has also helped to put us on the map as a great place to eat and buy homegrown and local food and drink.”
