Farm Yard Ales
14th August 2019
At Moss Wood Caravan Park, we are big believers of supporting local businesses. We use local suppliers wherever possible – whether for our grounds work or for our shop produce. And it doesn’t come any more local than our neighbours at Farm Yard Ales!
Based just around the corner from Moss Wood, on Moss Edge Farm in Cockerham, Farm Yard Ales was started by Steven in October 2017. The farm has been in Steven’s family for five generations, but in the twenty-first century diversification is very much the name of the game. But what an outstanding way to do it!
A real passion for craft ale shows in the fantastic beers of all descriptions being produced, from some wonderfully creative specials like ‘Easy Tiger’ and ‘Sour Plower’ to our own brand Wild Ale and Wild Pilsner! We’ve watched as Farm Yard Ales have started to appear in local pubs spreading out from Cockerham as people discover their great creations. Of course, you don’t have to go too far to try it – we sell a selection of the range in the on-site shop here at Moss Wood.
There is one place above all others to go to really get into the spirit of Farm Yard Ales however – Farm Yard Ales itself! Above the vats where the various ales are brewed, they have their very own Tap Room which is open at the weekends (Thursday and Friday evenings, Saturday and Sunday, plus bank holiday Mondays). The Tap Room is the closest bar to Moss Wood – and is always very popular with the people staying on the park with us (and the staff!).
We are also grateful for Farm Yard Ales hosting a number of our events. Thanks guys!
