November is here and we are pleased to announce a new addition to the range of Tancred Farm products. Our very own cold pressed Extra Virgrn Rapeseed Oil is here! With a light, nutty flavour – extra virgin rapeseed oil is low in saturated fat, an excellent source of Omega 3 and 6 and has an extremely high smoke point – making it ideal for frying or roasting.


At £3.50 for 500ml or £4.00 for a 750ml bottle, where can you go wrong? Bring your bottle back for a refill and we will knock fifty pence from the original price. Come and try it for yourself and let us know what you think.

With the excitement of Halloween and Bonfire night behind us, thoughts inevitably begin to turn to Christmas. Stir Up Sunday falls on 22nd November – do you have all of your ingredients in preparation? Don’t forget that our shop has lots of store cupboard essentials in stock for those last minute emergencies.

In addition to mixing up the pudding, November is a time for picking out those little stocking fillers for friends and family. From artisan beer to specialist ingredients we have everything to please the ardent foodie in your life. Tancred Farm will also be providing bespoke hampers, the perfect gift for anyone you feel deserves something extra special this Christmas season.

As we head towards the end of the month don’t forget to order that crucial ingredient for a successful seasonal roast. If it is a traditional bird that you prefer we can provide you a choice of farm reared goose or free range bronze turkey. We also have our excellent Lincoln Red rib of beef, Christmas ham and wonderful pork joints for those who like a bit of crackling with their Christmas dinner. We will be taking orders until the 20th December but don’t miss out.

Amongst the seasonal hustle and bustle, we are here to help with all your daily shopping needs. Our butchers counter is fully stocked with Tancred Farm hand cured bacon and sausages, alongside other excellent options for a wholesome winter supper. Our café team are also working hard to ensure that you have somewhere to come with friends and family. Join us for lunch and let Tancred Farm take care of the washing up.

One last thing, keep an eye out for us at our regular farmers market spots – Briggate, Chapel Allerton and York Shambles Market. If you haven’t got around to visiting one our market stalls before, this is a lovely time of year to stop by as everyone gets into the Christmas spirit.
