Cross Lanes Organic Farm Shop and Simon Hare of Trees House Farm collaborated to develop a highly successful short supply chain. It is focused on offering customers a wide range of high-quality meats, including Pasture for Life certified beef.
The Northern Real Farming Conference teamed up with Pasture for Life for an event hosted by Cross Lanes Organic Shop and Café and their supplier, Trees House Farm. The event on Thursday, 21st July 2022, near Barnard Castle, Durham, was a fantastic opportunity to visit two Pasture for Life Certified businesses that work in partnership, to maximise the success of both.
The visit went quite literally from Farm to Fork. It included a farm walk to see the certified livestock and hear how they are produced. Visitors then sampled a delicious PfL-certified beef lunch in the Café and a tour of the shop and talked about how they support local producers and weave eco principles and sustainability into product sourcing.
