R&J is a Yorkshire-born-and-bred family farm and butcher that's been earning loyalty since the 1850s. They refer to their farming style as Low and Slow. Low being the level of impact on nature, and Slow being the natural pace at which their animals grow because they freely graze. R&J also source from a cooperative of small-scale, specialist Yorkshire farmers. The reason being they are all about supplying the best, not just their own.
Hodgson Fish started with the creation of a smokehouse in 1850. Generations have handed down to generations, and it is now a Hartlepool-based legend of fish expertise. Exceptional freshness is a given. Their knowledge is priceless – we've never met a more discerning seafood supplier. And Hodgson ensures they only supply us with catch that is ethically sourced both in terms of fishing technique and fisherperson pay.
Our dairy products from Longley Farm are wholesome, traditional, and delicious. The independent farm has been home to one of Europe's finest Jersey herds, and that is the difference. The milk the cheeses, butters, creams, yogurts, and curds are made from is the best. Traditional Yorkshire values and processes are applied to looking after the cows and crafting the products.
