You can find the farm shop on Law Farm, Southowram. It’s the home of the Bamford family who have farmed here since 1974. The farm helped inspire Emily Bronte’s literary masterpiece Wuthering Heights as it was during her stay at Law Hill House, where she worked as a teacher, she learned of the historic dispute between the house’s builder Jack Sharp and his neighbours, providing the inspiration for the great work.
Lucy and Norman Bamford bought the farm in 1975, but sadly Norman passed away a few years later. Norman was a master butcher an exceptional farmer and horse breeder and his ambition to open a farmshop at that time was not to be realised.
His love of horses developed after working for the Co-Op in Heckmondwike after World War 2. 20 years on, the horses he bred (their linage) are still at the top of their game. Ingfield Hackney Stud was Norman’s baby at Ingfield Farm in Oakenshaw. The farm is no longer there but the memory is with Ingfield Ave keeping the name alive.
Lucy still lives in the farm and it is down to the hard work of 3 of her 4 children that the Farm Shop came to be. The Family Run Farm Shop is now run by son Richard, Daughter Margaret and grandson James, each having their own areas of expertise. They are hands on with the business and keen to provide an efficient, friendly and convenient service to their customers. They care about every detail concerning the day to day running of the shop and are Champions of Local Produce.
The Farm Shop has a welcoming feel and atmosphere. We hope you enjoy a pleasant visit at the shop where we can provide any information you may need with advise from our Skilled Butchers, Bakers & Deli staff.
