Nestled between two National Parks, the farm enjoys views stretching from the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors.
After serving in the First World War, Masham-born Osmond Pearson returned to his home county to start up a farm of his own. North Yorkshire Council had set up an initiative to help support agriculture in the area, through buying and renting out farms at affordable costs. In 1919, Osmond moved in, set up as a mixed farm and the Pearson legacy began.
Osmond's son John was born in 1925 on the farm, taking over tenancy in 1963 and later deciding to specialise in dairy farming. Tenancy was passed down again in 1991 to John’s son Richard, who still holds it today. Adapting again to a changing market, in 2005 the family purchased a small herd of Lincoln Red Cattle, renowned for their supreme beef.
In 2007 the Pearsons bought the farm from the council. The family were thrilled to welcome their fourth-generation farmer George (Richard’s son), who came on board in 2018.
The Pearsons take great pride in the knowledge that their beef is home bred, high in quality and fully traceable from field to fork!
"It's good to see that quality food is becoming more accessible, and that we are experiencing a shift to support local and small scale farmers. We fully back buying British, and are excited to be a part of this change. We encourage wildlife across the farm and love to see our local countryside flourishing."
