The Farm

By combining farming, tourism and conservation, we have created a wildlife haven on our 200 acre working farm. Farmer John wanted to give everyone the chance to witness a Yorkshire working farm in action. 25 years later, the farm continues to grow and the farm experience for visitors is enhanced too!

Once you arrive, you’re surrounded by exciting things to explore. With several trailed walks, an outdoor children’s play area and a Geocache hunt on site, The Grainary offers something for everyone.

The Grainary is based at the Keasbeck Hill Farm, owned by my father, John Simpson. He is the fifth generation of our families farming heritage and has transformed our simple farm with his Whole Farm Conservation Plan. The main benefit of this is that the farm is free to visit for school parties for educational projects.

Because of this, we are dedicated to improving the conservation value of the land and have partnered with numerous schemes and agencies listed below.

As you can see, we take our responsibilities to the earth and environment very seriously so that we can preserve, improve and share our land with you.
