We have been busy putting the finishing touches to the new Butchery & Charcuterie building here on the farm and with “The Grand Opening” being filmed for “The Dales” Series 3 on ITV we had a deadline, the 11th of September 2012. We finished the electrics the night before at about 10pm! So just the stage to set and make everything look the part.
So we had a little party, invited a few friends & customers, made a little food, got some local beer, arranged for it to stop raining briefly and the Farm Butchery is now officially open!
The Food: Just Meat & Beer! a fairly wide selection of meats & charcuterie, Yorkshire Chorizo Scotch Eggs, a sous vide mutton curry, a selection of PÂTÉS, Oxford Sandy Black pork rillette, crepinettes, sausages, cured meats, Yorkshire bresaola, Yorkshire chorizo and even lardo and outside on the spit roast, sticky ribs and a mixed spit of Yorkshire Dales Beef, Lamb & Pork, prepared by Nigel & Marc-Frederic.
To Drink: a couple of barrels from Old Spot, Cullingworth O.S.B 4.5% abv and the delicious Inn-Spired 4.3%abv.
Ade “cut” the ribbon & said a few words but you will have to wait to see that on ITV in early 2013.
Thanks to everyone who came along to support us and I hope you had a great evening and a little taste of things to come….
