Food & drink producers

Bothams of WhitbyBothams of Whitby

With such rich moorland, lush green dales and a bountiful coast, you won’t be surprised to hear that the North York Moors is full of passionate and talented farmers, fishermen, and food and drink producers. 

Farming methods have shaped our land - the moorland, dry stone walls, traditional hedgerows and field patterns you see. Buying locally produced meat, including lamb from the moors, not only gives you the chance to enjoy their tantalising flavours but means you can play a part in conserving this living landscape.
