Our brand new Christmas Cabin is on schedule to open on September 1.
It’s more than just a place to sell fabulous decorations, trees and lighting…we are transforming the Cabin into a truly magical experience for visitors of all ages.
We can’t wait to post pictures…
Staff from Country Harvest will be taking part in the 23.5-mile Yorkshire Three Peaks’ challenge on August 21.
All money raised from the event will be donated to Country Harvest’s charity of the year, NWAA.
The team includes Cassie Harrison, who has previously completed the 42-mile Keswick to Barrow walk ; Food Hall manager Richard Simmonds; award winning butcher George Taylor, his mum Becky and fiancée Harriet; Gift Hall manager Rebecca Clark; shop worker Janet Faraday and marketing manager Sue Riley.
The team plans to walk from Horton in Ribblesdale via Whernside, Pen y ghent and Ingleborough in 12 hours and will be led by Adrian Leigh who volunteered to help guide them following an appeal on Facebook.
Country Harvest owner Mike Clark said: “It’s a tremendous effort by everyone concerned and I would have loved to have joined them but someone has to work in the shop that day! We are very proud to be raising money for North West Air Ambulance and this challenge should really help boost our donation to them at the end of the year.”

Work is now well under way on creating our Christmas Cabin.
Builders started on the groundworks last week. Gavin Baker from Shanco, Castleford, and his team of Danny Phillips, Patrick Sullivan and Martin Nowak are making great progress. They spent this morning digging out the footings for the Cabin and at 2pm they’ll start pouring in the concrete….
Apologies to any customers inconvenienced by the building work on the edge of our site.
Lots going on in store this Easter, including:

COUNTRY HARVEST is expanding!
This week we received planning permission to put a 60ft by 30ft Christmas Cabin in the grounds of our existing business, creating six new jobs. Work on the cedar-clad building starts after Easter. The Cabin will officially open on September 1.
“Christmas is a really busy time for us and we want to ensure customers have an even wider choice of both gifts and decorations. This will bring visitors to Ingleton and the surrounding area at a hugely important time of year but one which is traditionally a quieter one for tourists. We will be offering lots of exciting and unusual decorations and gifts. There will also be more traditional offerings to encourage people from further afield to shop here and that will have a positive impact on the wider area,” said Country Harvest owner Mike Clark.
Work starts on creating the building and 29 extra parking spaces – approved by Craven District Council’s planning committee on Monday – almost immediately. The Cabin will predominantly be used to sell Christmas items, but in the spring and summer will also promote the work of selected local artists.
“We have so many wonderful Christmas items which we have sourced from both the UK and across Europe – we want to offer our customers things that they will not see anywhere else locally. We are very excited about this huge development at Country Harvest. This will enhance our existing offering in our gift hall and we hope our customers, old and new, will be as well,” said Mike. The Christmas Cabin will be managed by experienced retailers Rebecca Clark and Samantha Sherwin.
The 2017 spring/summer range of Tulchan women’s clothing is now in store.
We’re loving the new range – full of wonderful, warm colours and intricate zip and button details.
They’ve even got a design inspired by the buildings in Kirkby Lonsdale!
A big thanks to Karen and Michelle from Tulchan for putting the clothes on display for us.
A huge thank you to all the Country Harvest customers and staff who helped us raise an amazing £5,362 for charity in 2016.
Our nominated charity was North West Cancer Research.
The main fundraiser during the year was an Auction of Promises organised by the Mansergh branch of the charity and held at Country Harvest during the summer. So many people and local businesses donated amazing prizes and then gave generously to win some of the auction prizes.
Thank you to everyone concerned – particularly Wendy and Brenda who organised the Auction.
*This year Country Harvest’s nominated charity is North West Air Ambulance.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to Country Harvest’s charity fundraising this year.
Our chosen charity for 2017 is North West Air Ambulance (NWAA) which provides such an invaluable emergency service across the area.
For every £9 we raise, that’s another minute the helicopter can be in the air. Bearing in mind most missions last about an hour that means we need to raise £540 for each trip.
One of the real benefits of the NWAA is not only can they get to difficult, rural areas but they also take the patient to the correct hospital for them – whether that’s Kendal or Lancaster or specialist care hospitals like Alder Hey.
Country Harvest will put on a couple of fundraisers this year which we hope all our staff and customers will get involved in and there are also collection boxes in our Gift Hall and Coffee Shop should you be feeling generous. If you wish to make a larger donation please let us know.
“I have a very personal reason to thank the NWAA as many years ago they helped my family in an emergency situation. I’ve never forgotten how grateful I am to them and this is my small way of paying something back. We’ve got lots of events planned and I hope everyone will get behind this fantastic charity,” said Mike Clark, owner of Country Harvest.
