A new farm shop and café has opened in the Yorkshire Dales National Park thanks to grants supplied by Defra
Berry's Farm Shop and Café, in Swinithwaite, opened on 15th April to the public alongside a new nature trail.
Defra's Rural Development Programme for England and the Rural Enterprise Investment Programme both supplied funding to help with the opening.
Bridget Thornton-Berry, proprietor of the farm shop, said, “By having a farm shop and café we realise a dream of sharing the views and the land with more people, so they can understand that food comes from this landscape.
“We see ourselves as caretakers for a beautiful part of the dales, and we feel very privileged to live here,” she added.
Visitors will be able to see pigs, lambs and calves, and enjoy produce from the local area. The buildings were built using timber from the estate, and the entire project is focused on sustainability.
