While we were in north Yorkshire, Beadlam Grange Farmshop was the place we went almost daily for high quality provisions. It is a great farmshop staffed with really helpful people. And, before leaving Yorkshire, we had to have one last visit to stock up on cheese. Beadlam Farm have a great cheese counter, they carefully select their cheese, they are very knowledgeable about their cheese and they encourage you to taste anything you fancy before buying it.
We came away with: Mrs Bell’s Ewes Milk Blue – a delicious creamy blue, slightly salty, full of flavour and a little like a Roquefort but better; Black Sticks Blue – a very strong orange blue, firmer than Mrs Bells, possibly too strong for Rock but I loved it; Charcoal Black Cheddar – a fabulous creamy cheddar which, aesthetically looks fantastic on your cheeseboard and tastes as good as it looks; and a Barncliffe Brie – creamy but not super soft and with much more flavour than a standard brie.
Plus, we have a jar of Great Yorkshire Pickle from Rosebud Preserves. Sweeter than branston and a great accompaniment to the various cheeses.
Finally, thanks to Angela, Jan & Penny for their superb help and advice on all our visits to Beadlam Grange.
