Schacht Spindle Co.
Wow!! We took on distribution of their spinning and weaving products at the beginning of the year and cannot believe your response. There is a great market for products that are innovative, very high quality and come from one of the market leaders in the U.S.A. Their new SIDEKICK has arrived, the wheel is sideways therefore creating a different movement, it is compact and foldable. Come and try at the workshop or at the Wool Events this year.

We produce a good selection of burgers, sausages, chops and steaks ideal for barbecues or quick suppers. All meat is from our animals, red Dexters, Gloucester Old Spots and Berkshire pigs and Texel/Suffolk sheep.

Rosebud Preserves
We now stock this range of jams, jellies, pickles and chutney’s made on Rosebud Farm, near Masham in Yorkshire. They are made principally by hand in small batches using the best available local ingredients where possible e.g. these include wild fruit and flowers picked from surrounding hedgerows.
