Farmer Copleys is based at Ravensknowle Farm, Purston Jaglin, Pontefract.
Who are we?
Farmer Copleys is owned by Robert & Heather Copley with their two sons Jacob and Harry also providing a helping hand. The farm has been in the Copley family for over 140 years. It started as a dairy farm, then changed to arable and since Robert has returned to the farm he has brought back the livestock, as that is his true passion.
Farmer Copleys as it is known today started 15 years ago as a small farm shop with just one butcher alongside Robert & Heather. It has since expanded three times and now pride ourselves on having one of the best meat counters in the UK, a lovely Deli with fantastic cheese, olives, and beautiful home made bakery products made by our team of talented bakers.
We make our own jams, chutneys, fudge and more recently gelato ice cream, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables. We provide everything you need to have a feast with your family and friends!
From Farm to Farm Experience
Opening the Farm Shop, Moo Cafe and events on the farm has enabled it to stay in the Copley family, as it was too small to support a family in today’s modern agricultural industry. The development of Farmer Copleys has created a wonderful platform to showcase British Agriculture to the community, get people engaged with the countryside, where their food comes from and how it is produced.
Our values: Friendly, Cheeky, Trusted, Welcoming and above all else Honest. These values are core to the Copley family, the team and what the business is all about. They run through all aspects from been employed, marketing, the menu’s in Moo, the style of events we host, displays in the farm shop and the companies we work with, the most important being honesty.
Farmer Copleys strongly believes that British Agriculture is the best in the world, sustainability is the only way forward and that we are here to look after the countryside for future generations. Providing quality local, home and seasonally produced foods in a sustainable manner with respect for the environment.
