THE innovative owners of two Craven farms have come together to come up with a skyr and granola snack pot - and its flying off the shelves at selected Morrisons and Booths stores.

Hesper Farm, at Bell Busk, was the first farm in Britain to produce skyr in 2015 and is believed still the only farm using home produced milk and an original Icelandic skyr culture.

Now, it has been working with Yockenthwaite Farm – which produces an award-winning range of small-batch granola, porridge and muesli.

Hesper owner Sam Moorhouse, 27, said: “Both Hesper Farm and Yockenthwaite Farm are established dales farms and our respective families have both farmed here and known of each other for generations.

“As markets have changed we’ve each had to look at other ways of working and diversifying. We’ve separately diversified in different ways but are excited to be able to work together and unite our products with this collaboration.”

He added: “We’re two young farmers looking to work in innovative ways to take our products forward for the future and create something people will really enjoy.”

David Hird, 25, of Yockenthwaite Farm said: “We are originally hill sheep farmers but diversified into making cereals more than ten years ago. The opportunity to work with Sam on a product that celebrates the best of British farming and the best of British produce has been fantastic.

“Our slow-baked granola clusters – made fresh to order ever time – really complement Hesper’s smooth, creamy skyr. It’s the perfect delicious high protein low fat on-the-go combined snack, which doesn’t compromise on quality or flavour.”

The collaboration has launched with an innovative ‘origami’ lid which folds easily into a spoon, in a bid to cut down on unnecessary additional plastic.

The new on-the-go pots have launched in two flavours – Raspberry & Hibiscus skyr and Cold Brew Coffee & Vanilla skyr each with a topper of Real Oaty granola.
