Beacon cottage Farm has been in the Thompson Family for five generations and it looks as if the farming bug has been caught by the sixth generation. What started out as a dairy farm is now a very well maintained and productive arable farm, growing wheat, oats barley, peas and oil seed rape. The farm is also home to the Thompson family's herd of pedigree Dexters. These gentle and quiet cattle roam on the bank sides at the farm along with the family's horses and their cherished pony Sir Tom. The farm is situated within the Scalby parish of Scarborough. The farm enjoys beautiful sea views and within close proximity of the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors.
In 2017 Linglands Farm at Cloughton was purchased to add to the farming side of the business. Linglands turned into an 18 month labour of love for the Thompson Family. What was a run down farm is now a model farm, with beautiful restored stone walls by local stonewaller Nick Colbeck and new modern farming buildings by Norman and Grays of Pickering. Brian has put major investment into a new drainage system. With the help of local farming contractors Richard & Charles Clay and his team they have transformed the land into a productive model.
With changing policy to farming and the environment, hopefully the future looks bright.
