Date: 13th July 2016. Picture James Hardisty. Country Week.......on farmer Alec Mosey, of Syke Gate Farm, Coulton, near Hovingham. Pictured Alec's son Ben and wife Emma, who have come back from Australia, to help on the farm.

Husband and wife team Ben and Emma Mosey, pictured, have completed the purchase of a farm shop and egg production business in North Yorkshire. 

The couple are the new owners of Minskip Farm Shop near Boroughbridge, which launched almost 50 years ago. 

Langleys Solicitors, York, acted for the Moseys on the purchase which includes farmland, agricultural buildings, the farm shop and farm house. 

After travelling and living in Australia and Indonesia, Ben and Emma moved to Helmsley two years ago where Ben’s family has a pig and sheep farm. 

Emma – who is also an author – said: “We have always been passionate about food and its provenance and Minskip Farm Shop is the perfect opportunity for us to get involved in our own venture. 

“We will continue to grow seasonal produce on the farm and support the shop’s local and very loyal customers. We very much want high quality, locally grown and sourced produce to remain at the heart of the business.”

Ben and Emma’s ambitions for their Minskip venture include adding a café and developing a family experience based around the hen and egg production element of the business. 

Rachel Witherick, solicitor in commercial property at Langleys, said: “We are very pleased to support Ben and Emma as they embark on their first shop and food production venture. Minskip Farm Shop is well placed to flourish even further as part of their vision for the business.”
