Great Rock Co-operative opens

A new food co-operative, Great Rock Co-op, has opened at Staups Lea Farm, beyond Blackshaw Head, selling everything from meat to rhubarb.

Local producers can take their food to the shop, which takes a 20% cut of the proceeds. It is staffed by volunteers and is open on Saturdays between 10am and 2pm.

So far, producers selling through the shop include Bridestones Brewery, Pextenement, Craggs Cakes, Crimsworth Farm, Clare’s Bread and Burnt Edge Farm.

On Saturday it featured in the Yorkshire Post.
