Our shop is open, with a one-way system and limited numbers at any one time to ensure you have a safe shopping experience.
The café is closed during the week and will only be open Saturday and Sunday from 8.30am to 4.30pm (hot food until 4pm), for takeaway food only. We are serving the same menu as Fodder on the Hoof plus some specials, so keep your eye on social media for these.
Fodder on the Hoof, our takeaway is open with a socially distanced queueing system in place.
We look forward to welcoming you.
The Fodder Way
Passionate about Yorkshire, its farmers and local producers; Fodder, a Yorkshire farm shop and café, supports and sells the very best. Our shelves are stocked with food and drink from over 430 farmers and producers, with 85% of what is sold and served coming from Yorkshire.
We are proud to be the only food shop and café in the UK where all profits go to a farming charity – the Yorkshire Agricultural Society. So for every purchase you make, you help pay for a child to enjoy a free trip to Countryside Days or a farmer to have a health check which may save his life.
The idea of Fodder started in 2001 when British agriculture was hit hard by Foot and Mouth and the Society wanted to come up with a long-term sustainable plan which would help farmers in Yorkshire.
Fodder is open seven days a week, with free wifi, free parking, a beautiful view and a warm Yorkshire welcome.
At Fodder we’re so proud to support over 430 local makers, bakers, farmers, growers and producers. We’re dedicated to championing our suppliers big and small and have selected the best the region has to offer from our Harrogate shop.
Join us in our beautiful and bright Harrogate café, where we have a fantastic menu full of delicious options from Yorkshire and beyond. The Fodder café serves Great Yorkshire Breakfasts, delicious lunches and afternoon tea, alongside coffee, tea and mouth-watering cakes.
Located just outside our entrance stands our shiny, restored Airstream. So if you’re enjoying a brisk walk or you’d just rather sit outside and enjoy the stunning Crimple Valley views, we’re happy to offer you hot and cold drinks, cooked meals like burgers and bacon sandwiches as well as a variety of seasonal specialties.
Gifts and more
