Both Tom and David, our two co-founders, have agricultural backgrounds and both are passionate about evolving farming to be relevant to today, rather than just doing things because it’s how they’ve always been done.
It’s what led Tom to set up the Wold Top Brewery (our sister brewery) in 2003, and what then gave both Tom and David the idea of the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery a decade later.
Grow Yorkshire is a great new initiative focused on inspiring Yorkshire farmers to grow their businesses beyond the usual – they call it ‘cultivating enterprise.’
Earlier this year, Tom spoke with the Grow Yorkshire team about Hunmanby Grange and what inspired him to develop the farm here in the ways that he has done.
If you’ve got a spare 5 minutes, grab yourself a cup of tea and a biscuit (or perhaps a dram of a Distillery Projects if the sun’s past the yardarm) to hear Tom talk about what he’s been doing since 2003, and watch the farm looking really quite lovely.
