Tour de Bolster Moor
Simon & Andrew get a tandem!
Watch out Chris Froome - Simon & Andrew have got a tandem!
We're getting into champion spirit for the Tour de France, because we're really excited for the historic race coming to Yorkshire in July. If only there was a race for butchers on a sausage powered tandem...
Baguettes and ciabatta
We've extended our bread range and are now baking French style baguettes (large and small) as well as Italian style ciabatta. A lovely addition for summer eating.
New design bags for life
Send us your pics!
Our bags for life have had a makeover. They don't get any more Yorkshire than this...
We'd love to know how far their Yorkshireness travels. Email us a pic of you holding yours if they accompany you to far flung places this summer (to firstname.lastname@example.org).

Coffee Shop Review
A Food Blogger's Visit
Bolster Moor Coffee Shop was visited by an independent food critic last week and we're delighted to have received a rave review!
Having sampled the very same bacon butty served in our Coffee Shop that was voted 'Britain's Best' by Olive magazine, this foodie blogger comments:
"Bolster Moor Farm & Coffee Shop…
Fantastic food, Well priced, Delightful staff.
I shall return.
It was well worth making the trip."

Black Treacle Bacon
NEW Bolster Moor product line
We've just created a super tasty new product line, in our Bolster Moor dry-cured back bacon with black treacle. It brings together the perfect saltiness, with the sweetness of black treacle. It makes a fantastic sandwich or it is also great wrapped around chicken. Try it!
Making our own electricity
No, we’re not referring to butchers in green aprons… we’re talking about the new solar panels now installed on the back of the farm shop. We’re making use of sunlight to be greener in our energy consumption and also export to the national grid. So now not only do we make our own sausages, we make our own electricity too! All we need now is a little more sunshine…
One of the UK's Best Roadside Eateries
As named in the 'White Van Gourmand'
Bolster Moor Coffee Shop has been named one of the 'Best Roadside Eateries in the UK'.
The ‘White Van Gourmand’ is a guide of great roadside eateries, nominated by van driving men and women, and published by More Than Insurance. Our Coffee Shop has been nominated and included in the guide, scoring 5 stars overall with a glowing review. The ‘hero dishes’ are identified as our Hot Bolster Moor Beef Sandwich and our Bacon Sandwich (already winner of Britain’s Best Bacon Butty by Olive Magazine). Reviewer Mattie VanderPloeg says:
“The panaoramic windows offer a magnificent view and create a spacious and comfortable feel… Greeted by friendly staff, ordering is simple… All the food is homemade, locally sourced and generously served.”
We go on to score the maximum 5 stars for the quality of our food, the friendliness of our staff, for cleanliness and value for money. Eee by gum, that made us smile!
Britain's Best Bacon Butty
As voted by Olive magazine
We're delighted to have won Britain's Best Bacon Butty.
Olive magazine recently ran a competition in a quest to find Britain's Best Bacon Butty. They visited our Bolster Moor Coffee Shop in secret and having sampled our champion bacon butty gave us the honour of being their winner. In this month's issue of Olive, they write:
"There was one clear winner... Bolster Moor Farm Shop wins the honour of being Olive magazine's Best Bacon Butty winner 2013."
Take a look at this month's Olive magazine, which is on sale in shops now. We're over the moon to have been recognised in this way for our Coffee Shop! Now please excuse us, whilst we go and have a bacon butty...
