The Sourcing of Food Used at The Barn
Foods are carefully sourced by looking at not only their quality and provenance but also their place of origin (in order to support a variety of small Yorkshire businesses and lessen air miles ) and, for some foods, whether they are organic and/or fair trade.
Fifty percent of our foods are sourced within a five mile radius of The Barn. In addition, 90% of the foods we use are sourced within Yorkshire and are also stocked in our shop (The Village Stores) next door where we endeavour to showcase Yorkshire produce as well as provide the usual range of family groceries alongside Yorkshire crafts as well as Post Office services.
