It was in 2007 that Peter’s late mother Jenny & father, Mark Rooke opened Beadlam Grange Farmshop & Tearoom. They welcomed their first customers on the 6th June 2007 and it continues to be a real pleasure to meet and greet customers old and new and we thank you for all your loyalty and continued custom.
It was their desire to secure a future for the family farm for the next generation and to maximise the value of Beadlam Grange’s homebred Limousin beef and become as self-sufficient as possible which was the original vision. Always aware of their great location in the heart of beautiful Ryedale they set about converting redundant Grade II listed farm buildings on the working farm into the Farmshop, Butchery and Granary Kitchen it is today.
In October 2020, Peter and his wife Angela, took over the Farmshop business. Their misson is simple:-
‘to provide an exceptional eating and shopping experience built on our commitment to farming, homegrown & local produce and a destination for all to enjoy’.
Peter runs the farm along with Mark, producing all the beef for the farmshop and tending to the animals welfare.
Angela manages the Farmshop, Butchery & Granary Kitchen along with the dedicated, team of local staff.
We are all extremely proud of our true farm to fork operation and our commitment to quality has gained us an enviable reputation which we all strive daily to maintain.
And “the future’s bright” in so far as Peter & Angela’s son William & daughter Cordelia are already keen to put their wellies on and get stuck in!
