Scaife Hall Farm at Hardisty Hill, Blubberhouses, is set to stage its third charity Big Breakfast.

The award-winning bed and breakfast accommodation provider, run by husband and wife Chris and Christine Ryder, will be serving up the three-day breakfast bonanza from January 28 to 30.

Proceeds are again in aid of the Addington Fund, a national aid organisation that helps maintain the economic and social fabric of UK farming communities.

Previous Big Breakfasts at Scaife Hall Farm – winner of the 2011/12 Best Yorkshire Breakfast category in the Deliciouslyorkshire Awards – collected almost £7,500 for the charity.

There will be two sittings per day between 10am and noon and 1pm to 3.00pm, with locally produced food featuring prominently on the menu.

Friends of the Ryders will help cook and serve breakfast, among them farmers’ wives Christine Clarkson, of Carleton, and her daughter Liz Gudgeon, who runs a farm B&B in Embsay.

Ian Bell, director of the Addington Fund, said: “The Ryders have been among our staunchest supporters over the years.

“Fundraising of this nature is absolutely fundamental to our needs and we hope farming communities, businesses and the public at large will support their 2014 charity farmhouse breakfast – and savour one of the best farmhouse breakfasts to be had in the whole of Yorkshire.”

Tickets, priced at £15, are already selling fast.

“We’ve served up well over 300 charity big breakfasts in the past and we’re hoping we can break through the 500 mark this time around and take our fundraising total past £10,000,” said Christine.

Scaife Hall Farm is also an Enjoy England Breakfast Award winner, is listed in The Independent’s 50 Best B&Bs and a Trip Advisor 2012 Certificate of Excellence winner.

The 600-acre working hill farm maintains flocks of Swaledale, mule and blue-faced Leicester sheep, a herd of belted Galloway cattle – and free range hens whose eggs will be served up at the charity big breakfast.

Mr Ryder is a regular customer at Skipton Auction Mart.
