Bert's Barrow



Bert's Barrow is a small family run farm spanning across generations in a little village called Hillam in North Yorkshire. Started up by Marlene and Ian (Bert) Thompson with a cart at the side of the road with an honesty box, selling locally sourced seasonal vegetables in aid of the village defibrillator fund. The barrows are still here to this day. We have a wide selection of produce and we still support local farmers where ever possible by stocking locally grown fruit and vegetables as well as growing some ourselves. The shop is proud to host over 85% Yorkshire produce, supporting many award winning Yorkshire businesses. Farm diversification has led to a fantastic wedding and events space (Bert's Barn) and successful Pick Your Own site for pumpkins, strawberries and Christmas trees. The team is going from strength to strength, moving from just one full time employee to 20 temporary staff during the Covid-19 crisis. Owners Charlotte and Jason were quick with the drive through initiative during the first lockdown, creating the first drive through farm shop and attracting media attention and widespread community support with the JustGiving page for the NHS staff. Come and see us (restrictions permitting!) for freshly ground coffee, scooped ice cream and much more! Find us on social media for more information!
