Beating the blues in the best possible taste
A Pocklington farm shop that started life as a ‘farmers’ shop’ in December 1997 is belatedly celebrating its 21st birthday with a food and drink tasting event.
Founders of The Mile – Pocklington (formerly The Mile-Farm Shop and Feed Shed), Colin and Jo Barnes, are inviting people to join them for a Taste of Yorkshire event on Saturday, January 26, when selected producers will be on hand to talk about locally sourced food and drink with a chance to sample their products and.
Between 2pm and 5pm, a host of producers, including Thixendale’s Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil, The Chilli Jam Man and The Yorkshire Dales Cheese Company will be offering visitors a taste of their food and drink.
Jo Barnes said: “Given that the third Monday of January is historically known as ‘Blue Monday’, we decided that we’d try to beat the blues and give customers something free and tasty to look forward to.”
