Yockenthwaite Farm has big plans to make Britain’s breakfasts tastier and more sustainable with every bowl. Their granola is grrrrrrreat (and grrrrrrrrreen!), and don’t even get us started on their perfect porridge.
When your family have been farming for almost 200 years, you get pretty good at it. And Yockenthwaite’s many years of passionate porridge production and green-hearted granola grafting can be tasted in every delicious spoonful.
Based in a delightful hamlet in the Yorkshire Dales, the farm has even featured on Channel 5’s All Creature’s Great and Small.
An historic farm making history
The Hird family have worked on Yockenthwaite Farm since 1842, and were once close neighbours with the famous Bronte sisters. In the many years since, they’ve reached wuthering new heights, creating a glorious range of natural cereals.
Their homemade granola recipe started as a treat for overnight visitors on the farm. But their guests couldn’t get enough, and it wasn’t long before the Hirds were inspired to unleash the breakfast of eco champions on a wider scale.
Why we love ‘em
Yockenthwaite Farm stow their wild oats in sustainable packaging, using plastic-free, compostable nature flex. But their eco-friendly efforts don’t end there.
The family business use the traditional, old-school methods to give their award-winning cereals even more tantalising texture and flavour.
