Farmer Copleys was started in 2003 by Robert & Heather Copley. Little did they know that in a few short years Farmer Copleys would be crowned the best farm shop in Great Britain. The farm shop boasts a large Butchery Department named ‘The Whole Beast Butchery’, a full shop and delicatessens, a bakery department making everything from award winning pork pies to the most amazing custard slices. Farmer Copleys is also home to Moo Café, open 7 days a week priding itself of preparing fresh seasonal food for you to enjoy. The business has taken the experience out onto the farm in recent years with the advent of a 0.5 Km farm walk, Pick your own strawberries, an interactive Corn Maze and the UK’s largest Pumpkin Festival!
Farmer Copleys is also bringing liquorice back to Pontefract with the reintroduction of a Liquorice Garth and an application for a PDO currently awaiting approval. ‘so, those of you who remember having fresh liquorice root as a child will be able to relive those nostalgic memories Autumn 2015!’
Currently under construction is the New Moo café which will be named ‘Moo by Day … Beast by Night’ due to open late summer 2016. Thus allowing us to expand the fresh retail side of the farm shop and increase the number of seats, plus offering a private dining area and conference facilities, so in short there is an awful lot going on down on the farm.
