Fish and chips aren't the only food you have to sample in Yorkshire. Pork Pies are a must have, too.

Farmhouse Fare: History
Ted Lee started the pie business up in 1975, with the successful aim to bring good, quality, wholesome, fresh farm food to the public. As the business grew the family stepped up and took on a larger premises where they still remain today.

Award winning Pork Pies
Not long after starting up the business the family won their first award for their now local-famous pies; now years later the business has won a variety of awards for their plain pies and their flavoured ones alike.

The Great Northern Pie Competition is perhaps their greatest victory claim yet.

Claiming not just one but three titles at one competition and only returning the following year to wipe the floor again.

Supreme Champion was claimed two years running with the Pork and Apple Stand Pie only to be followed by taking the reserved champion award home in 2011 with the Pork Stand Pie; and if this wasn't enough Farm House Fare only went and topped it off with a second place with their Traditional Pork Pie.

Flavours of Pies
Over the years the business has become more adventurous with their pies and introduced some enticing, must-try, flavours. If you fancy something that will tantalise your taste buds more than the Plain Pork Pies, how about the Pork and Apple, Pork and Cranberry or the Pork and Black pudding for a true Yorkshire taste?

A selection of Pies.

Although just because the business has become locally famous for its Pork Pies doesn't mean it is the only thing it offers. Sausage Rolls, Potato and Meat, Scotch Eggs, Steak and Onion, Quiches, Farmhouse Pasties; a Cornish Pasty without the veg, are just a selection of the banquet Farmhouse Fare can offer.

Eighteen Flavours of Sausage.
Pies aren't the only thing that the business has to offer, with eighteen different flavours of pork sausage there has to be at least one flavour you fancy tasting. Pork and Chive, to Pork, Honey and Mustard to additive free Old-fashioned sausage. If you're not from Yorkshire try the ever so popular Yorkshire Sausage, of coriander, parsley and nutmeg; more flavourable than it sounds. A gluten free sausage is also available in frozen packs of six.

Farmhouse Fare is now run by Skipton lady, Janet Greene and bar a few other employees the business is still family run, with Janet's husband, two nephews, mum and dad still offering a hand on both the shop and bakery premises.

If a vast majority of tantalizing flavours can't encourage you to take a trip to this Pie Shop then possibly other people's opinions can.
The following are just a selection of the ever growing list of compliments the Pie business receives:

'I've come all the way from Bradford for these pies',

'Best Pork Pies in Skipton',

'Can I have another one?',

'The nicest Pork Pie I've ever tasted',

Hot Pork Pies are available throughout the lunch time period, as well as Pie and Peas; aside from Tuesdays. Hot Pork sandwiches are for sale at limited availability on Saturdays.
