More than 400 people attended the official opening of our Christmas Cabin.
There was a Christmas lights switch-on, the chance to meet Elsa and Anna from Frozen, a live reindeer, free food tastings and performances by Giggleswick and Settle Brass Band.
The free event started at 6pm, with the lights switch-on at 7pm followed by a performance by the brass band.
What a way to start the countdown to Christmas…and remember to put Nov 1 in your diary for next year too!
Our butcher George Taylor’s meat products have again been praised for being some of the best in the UK.
George attended the annual Great Yorkshire Pork Pie, Sausage & Products Competition in Harrogate on Sunday where his thin pork sausage, black pudding and beef burger all won second prize – competing against butchers and food halls across the country.
Well done George…and if you haven’t visited the butchery counter at Country Harvest it’s well worth a look.
Our first ever Festival of Pies is being held on September 29 & 30.
Free pie tastings on both days from 10am-5pm, a pie panel and an Ingleborough Pie Making Competition where you can win £100 or one of the two £50 runners-up prizes.
If you’re interested in taking part in the pie making competition (the pie can be sweet or savoury and it simply has to either look or ‘taste’ of Ingleborough) all you have to do is bring your pie in for tasting at 4pm on Saturday, September 30. You can bring as many different flavoured pies as you like.
Or if you prefer eating rather than making pie – come and try some new delicious flavours, including Black Pudding, Pear & Pork or Coffee, Beef and Pepper alongside many of our more traditional bestsellers.
Many of our pies can also be ordered in 8-inch and 11-inch versions.
Free entry to our Festival of Pies, kindly sponsored by Hawkshead Relish and Wessex Mill Flours.
To celebrate the opening of our Christmas Cabin we are putting on a new event in December – Breakfast With Santa!
The breakfasts will be held every weekend in December, and every day during the week leading up to December 25 (including Christmas Eve).
It includes a child’s breakfast (3 items from a cooked breakfast menu with toast and a drink) a story read by an elf and a gift from Father Christmas.
The breakfasts in our Coffee Shop will last 45 minutes and start at 9am, 10am and 11am.
Ten children per session and one accompanying adult per child.
Tickets cost £10 from our Christmas Cabin. ON SALE NOW!
We think this might be a very popular event so please book early to avoid disappointment.
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.”
Anyone who wishes to sponsor or donate money can do so in store or online via Just Giving https://www.justgiving.com/companyteams/country-harvest

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.
