Farmers’ Market 2017
The First Farmers’ Market
The first Farmers’ Market was held at Tockwith Show in 1999 and was officially opened by Phil Willis MP -now Lord Willis. It has proved to be a very popular attraction at the show, increasing in size each year and now including cookery demonstrations throughout the day. This marquee is usually packed with visitors, sampling the culinary delights of Yorkshire produce.
Cookery demonstrations (10.30, 12.15, 14.00 and 15.00) are a popular feature of the Farmers’ Market and this year sees the return of celebrity chef Robert Ramsden. The marquee is constantly filled with wonderful cooking aromas. In addition we are most fortunate to have Andrew Wood and his “Bread Oven” classes, where children learn to make and bake their own bread – adding in that wonderful aroma of fresh baking.
The following companies are exhibiting at the 2017 show:
Orchards of Husthwaite
make artisan ciders, vinegar and apple juices. They are based in the village of Husthwaite – known for over three centuries as ‘the orchard village of North Yorkshire’. Galtres apples are used in the pressing of the ciders, and local villagers are keen to go scrumping (legally, of course!) to provide a good supply. Because villagers and volunteers supply the apples rather than non-local wholesalers, Orchards of Husthwaite can donate the money saved to village projects. A win-win situation all round! http://www.orchardsofhusthwaite.co.uk/
Raydale Preserves is a family run business, established by husband and wife team Lesley and Derek Kettlewell in 1978 and set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales on the family farm in the valley of Raydale. They make all of their products on site and make all of their goods by hand. From topping strawberries to sticking on labels each stage of production is done by hand to ensure true excellence in the finish. They pride themselves on using traditional methods to produce their products. All are made traditionally in small pans, ensuring preserves of the highest quality. Wherever possible locally sourced products are used and all their soft fruit is sourced from a North Yorkshire fruit farm. Come and sample their excellent jams, chutneys, jellies and marmalades. http://www.raydalepreserves.co.uk/
Tancred Farm Shop
Dean and Angela Hullah from Tancred Field Farm, Whixley sell over 40 different varieties of award winning sausage as well as pork pies, dry cured hams, gammon, bacon, salami and home-made burgers. They supply fresh beef from their own grass fed pedigree Lincoln Red cows and locally sourced poultry, lamb and seasonal game. http://www.tancredfarmshop.co.uk/butcher.html
Wharfe Valley Farms
The Kilby family are third generation farmers who have been in Collingham since the 1960s, adding oil seed rape to their traditional crop rotation in the early 1980s and then embarking on their venture into pressing their own extra virgin Rapeseed Oil. You can now buy flavoured rapeseed oil as well (rosemary and garlic, red chilli or oak smoked) – these are naturally flavoured with no concentrates, flavourings or added chemicals. Used by many a discerning chef – come and try this wonderful Yorkshire rapeseed oil. http://wharfevalleyfarms.co.uk/
Pork pies produced from their own stock of pigs, which are bred exclusively on their farm at Whixley Grange, Whixley, York. Only the very best cuts of pork and carefully selected ingredients are used for their award winning pork pies, sausage rolls and pasties. Try their pork pie, with a generous layer of chicken in the middle and topped with sage and onion stuffing – finished off with cranberry sauce or apricots. Very more-ish! http://www.voakespies.co.uk/

Three Little Pigs
Three Little Pigs is a perfectionist producer of cured meats based in Yorkshire. We make perfect Chorizo and Salami. Winner of Great Taste gold star awards. Our story begins with us lovingly curing and hand-making all our chorizo and salami in small batches on our own farm, which has seen five generations of the Clarkson family. http://www.threelittlepigschorizo.co.uk/
is a recently established company selling ‘what real dog and cat food looks like’. Based on the common sense idea that we should give our pets as natural a diet as possible, Naturaw sells only high quality meat with no cheap fillers, chemicals, additives or preservatives. Their food is also totally grain free, and dogs and cats just love the taste. Popular at the moment are Simply Duck Mince, Organic Veg, and Organic Beef with Chicken, but Naturaw has a wide range of meals and snacks to offer. http://www.naturaw.co.uk/
will be at the Show again this year with their mouth-watering array of oat biscuits and flapjacks. Some of the combinations are definitely worth a bite – try PeanutButterCup, or CoconutLimeDrizzle along with the slightly more traditional FlapjackHeaven.
