Quality chocolates had been a passion of ours for a long time and chocolate making used to be a part-time hobby. In September 2010, we decided to take that hobby further and make the dream of having our own chocolate producing business a reality. So we converted our garage into a mini chocolate factory and gave up the other jobs. We now supply more than 250 companies across the Uk with our handmade chocolates. Shop here

Sloemotion Distillery is an established artisan spirits business creating great tasting spirits and liqueurs. The brand has its roots firmly in the Yorkshire countryside and this is a huge influence on the business, providing not only a source of hedgerow botanicals but also inspiration on their doorstep. A strong philosophy of respect for the environment runs through the heart of the business and has done from day one, nearly 20 years ago.
The business began after carrying out a wildlife conservation project resulting in a proliferation of sloes growing in the farm hedgerows; for Joff Curtoys, Sloemotion Founder, who had grown up sipping Sloe Gin in the countryside, this was the seed of an idea and from there the business has flourished.

The Chilli Jam Man
Simon AKA The Chilli Jam Man started making chilli jams to spice up his food after living in Australia for a few years, where he fell in love with South-East Asian flavours. When he returned to the UK he couldn’t find anything to hit the spot, so he decided to make his own. He made small batches which were soon in high demand from his friends. He turned up to his first market in 2009 with 40 jars and sold out by lunchtime, so decided to make some more – and soon ran out of space! Making everything in-house in his commercial kitchen in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds, Simon now runs a small team and still prides himself in using the best ingredients.
Spicing up everything from sandwiches to stir-fries, pasta to pizza and curries to chilli con carne, most of the range is now vegan-friendly and gluten-free, which has seen sales soar. The range has picked up many National Awards along the way, including so many Great Taste Awards he’s now classed as a Great Taste Producer. Shop here

Yorkshire Dama Cheese
Yorkshire Dama Cheese started in 2014 after moving to Yorkshire from Syria, and just four months later, much to our surprise and delight, we won the World Cheese Award Bronze Prize. This has since been followed by many more awards and recognition, plus TV appearances with the likes of The Hairy Bikers, Nadiya Hussain, James Martin, Countryfile to name a few. All this success led to a move to new premises in early 2017 and we were honoured that HRH The Princess Royal came along to open our new factory.
Our “Squeaky Cheese” is now produced in 7 different varieties from locally sourced cow’s milk and we also have recently added goat and sheep milk versions. We also make a range of other diary products such as ricotta, yogurt and butter as well as our squeaky cheese and supply many local farm shops, delis and restaurants, as well as further afield through nationwide distributors.

Everything is still 100% made by us here on our farm on the Yorkshire Wolds and everything is made with the base ingredient of our award-winning Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil.
Our team may have grown since the early days, but we are still passionate about low food miles and making the most of the wonderful produce Yorkshire and the UK have to offer. We love working collaboratively and are particularly proud of our products created together with other local producers. Shop here
