The most exciting time of the year

Christmas is the most exciting time of the year, especially at Mackenzies Farm Shop and Café. Having served the local community for over 20 years, the Blubberhouses site is currently at its very best, with plenty of festivity in the air.

As is the case every December, the team have been working closely with the finest local producers, who are all considered part of the Mackenzies family. The aim is to bring you only the freshest and finest local produce this Christmas.

There are delicious cheeses from The Cheeseboard of Harrogate, Yorkshire’s finest chutneys to tickle those taste buds, and a selection of your favourite indulgent desserts. Of course, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a festive tipple, so with hand-picked award-winning wines and Yorkshire’s finest ales, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Onto the main event; the meat. Mackenzies are proud of their locally sourced meat and poultry, sourcing from producers they personally know and trust. Their butchers, Paul and Thomas, take pride in ensuring they only have the best tasting quality meat and when meat only travels a short distance, you simply can’t get any fresher. The butchery duo expertly prepares the best cuts of locally sourced wagyu beef, gammon and pork, as well as making their own delicious sausages and pigs in blankets.

In the smokehouse nestled next to the farm shop, their team take time to create the finest smoked and cured meat, fish and pates. Using traditional methods of curing and smoking, burning only oak chips to ensure the best natural flavour, they’re proud that everything they produce is free from artificial colours and flavourings. From their dressed smoked salmon side, sharing smoked meat and fish platters, or award winning traditional dry cured bacon, their smokehouse creations are guaranteed to impress.

You can buy all you need for the festive period, including your entire Christmas dinner, by either completing their physical pre-order form, or heading to their website and placing your order there. It will then be ready to collect just a couple of days before Christmas, with three collection dates available, ensuring it’s as fresh as possible for the big day.

If you’re visiting the shop, make sure you head into their grotto-like Christmas unit, packed with decorations, gift cards, wrapping paper and more. It’s bound to put you in the festive mood.

Looking for an easy gift idea? Look no further than their range of smoked meat and fish hampers. They’re ideal for gifting all year round, especially around Christmas time. Packed with their very own artisan items, they’re perfect for any smoked food lover. Next day delivery is available throughout the entire UK, with slots available right up until mid-December.
