It was in 2007 that we, Mark & Jenny Rooke opened Beadlam Grange Farmshop & Tearoom. We welcomed our 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 our desire to secure a future for the family farm for the next generation and to maximise the value of our homebred Limousin beef and become as self-sufficient as possible which was the original vision. Always aware of our great location in the heart of beautiful Ryedale we set about converting redundant Grade II listed farm buildings on our working farm into the Farmshop, Butchery and Tearoom it is today. Our mission is to provide an exceptional eating and shopping experience built on our commitment to farming, homegrown & local produce and a destination for all to enjoy. Mark & son Peter are the very busy farmers producing all the beef for the farmshop and tending to the animals welfare. Peter’s wife Angela & Jenny manage the Farmshop, Butchery & Tearoom and daughter Helen runs her own business in the old cowhouse at Beadlam Grange, Robert & Ruby – Country Gifts & Interiors. 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 is already keen to put his wellies on and get stuck in!
