Customer service is our primary focus and we will always strive to go the extra mile to ensure you come back for more.
As the founder of Bessie’s, the ethos evolved from my grandmother. Our shared love of food has been part of our family heritage since a young age. Growing up in Pateley Bridge in the Yorkshire Dales, there was nothing better than sitting alongside my grandmother; seeing all that wonderful Yorkshire produce grown in her own garden; always with a delicious end product.More about us
Preserving a Family Heritage.
Inspired by my Nan “Bessie” and my childhood spent living on the family farm. Bessie would always involve me and my two sisters in whatever she was busy with in the kitchen whether that be a pie, preserves, bread or jam. Using seasonal fruits and vegetables from the farm garden and turning them into something YUMMY! Read more about Bessie’s incredible story here
