Over 300 Local Products at this great shop!!!
This piece could have gone under Hidden Gems OR Total Local Heroes. You decide!
If you ever want to meet someone who lives and breathes the whole ethos of Totally Locally then look no further than John Buxton who along with Kate and Suzie run Ryecorn Wholefoods.
After 20 plus years they have just moved to larger premises in Bethel Street, Brighouse and as they take buying local very seriously they decided not only would they stock more local products they would refit the shop using only local suppliers and services, so the timber for the shelving is from Brighouse, the picture frames around the walls are from Harrison Lord in Brighouse, some lovely wicker shopping baskets are from, yes you guessed it, Oddjobs in Brighouse, the sign is from Todmorden and some lovely tables from Halifax Sell-it-Centre that were groaning with local honey from Luddenden, the old cooking range in the back of the shop is from Brighouse, even the music playing in the shop was by a local artist.
As you walk around the shop, everywhere you look it’s local, local, local, with organic veg from Wetherby and some quince from Brighouse, there’s bread, cakes and Lottie Shaws Parkin from Elland and Dickinsons dairy products from Holmfirth, cheese from Southowram, hand-made chocolate bars from York, Mr Fitzpatrick’s Temperance Drinks from Rawtenstall, coffee roasted in Bingley, granola from Driffield and even flour from Yorkshire Organic Millers, then we get onto all the health supplements which are from Silsden and Pocklington with soaps from Rastrick and Todmorden.
If that wasn’t enough John makes his own range of herbal tinctures, shampoos, hand creams and bath salts, as well as mixing his own herb and spice blends and seed mixes.
Now they’ve completed their move they thought they’d best add up how many local products they stock and have got to over 300, which is pretty damn impressive if you ask me.
