Boxed in with Region’s Finest

A new business is looking to shake up the UK’s rapidly growing recipe box market by focussing on quality, artisan Yorkshire produce.

Seeing an opportunity to develop the business thanks to the wealth of incredible locally-grown produce right on their doorstep that didn’t require importing from overseas, Thirsk based Charles and Geoff Allen, launched Born & Bred to deliver farm shop quality, premium ingredients and recipe cards to homes across the UK.

Working with local Chef Steph Moon to produce recipes each month, Born and Bred, who recently won the Best Specialist Retailer of the Year accolade at the Flavours of Herriot Awards, produce a range of options for customers using products from some 60 independent Yorkshire based businesses, many of who are local, regional, national and international award-winners themselves.

Priding themselves on innovative recipes using 100% seasonal Yorkshire produce from the pigs outdoor-reared in the Dales and Wolds to Yorkshire Fettle hand crafted in the Vale of York.

Born & Bred boxes are currently delivered on four dates each month, and customers can choose three meals (out of a choice of nine) for two, four or six people and include mouth watering recipes such as Pork Medallions with Rhubarb & Black Pudding, Cock-A-Leekie Chicken Stew and Sticky Sesame & Hoisin Tuna.
