Far Barsey Farm Shop opened its doors to the public in May 2006, in the outskirts of a small village of Barkisland, Near Halifax, West Yorkshire.
The Dean Family, John and Ruth alongside daughters Katie, Rachael and son in law, Richard, run both the Farm and Farm shop together with a full time butcher and part time members of staff. The business runs in the name of its forbearers C. Lumb & Son and has been in Ruth’s family for 4 generations, Katie and Rachael been the fourth generation. Katy and Richard's son, Robert, is the up and coming fifth generation.
Far Barsey had been a dairy farm for the past 80 years using the traditional farming methods and started delivering their own produced milk with horse and cart. Doorstep deliveries ceased in 1999 as the industry had started to decline with supermarkets taking over. The farm currently runs a Pedigree Limousin Herd ‘The Barkisland Herd’ alongside a predominately Limousin commercial herd which supplies the high quality beef for the shop.
