...A little background information on us
Truly Scrumpious is a family run business in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales just off the A59. We started our Home-Baking in Burnsall, a beautiful village close to Bolton Abbey & Grassington.
We took 'The Shop On The Green' almost 5 years ago now, and we made it a small village shop with a twist. As well as daily essentials we also stock a selection of hand packed sweets & Stefan Dumon handmade chocolates.
As Burnsall is a seasonal destination we soon found out that winters could get very lonely so we decided to pull out Grandma's recipe books and have a crack at some of her Yorkshire Recipes.
We started with traditional Loaf cakes such as Madeira & fruit loafs which went down a treat so we started to experiment with different flavours, which takes us to the selection we have today!
We also tried Grans Traditional Flapjack Recipe, & with a few tweeks here or there it is the product we have today! Although the recipe is no longer written down, & is now a family secret! Not content with 'Traditional Flapjack' we started to make our own flavours, we now have a whopping 15 flavours of flapjack! All of which (of course) start from our secret recipe!
It was our Flapjack that soon got us noticed, & has been mentioned in the Yorkshire Post & the Dalesman on numerous occasions & we were also included in 'The Way Of The Roses' cycle route as a great stop off...for our flapjack!
To add another skill to our trade we also make all our own Sausages & pies, which of course we stock in both of our shops!
With the popularity growing we started to wholesale our home-baked cakes and flapjack & our handmade sausages & pies. We soon learnt however that the little kitchen in Burnsall wasn't big enough to multi-task the production of all our products. If you have visited 'The Shop On The Green' you will instantly know what we mean!
We then decided to look for a production unit, which is where 'Truly Scrumpious' comes in. Located at Blubberhouses, roughly 20minutes from Burnsall seemed perfect! We have two purpose built rooms to the back of the shop, one for producing the sausage and one for our baking.
All our Home Made goodies can be found at 'The Shop On The Green' at Burnsall & at our main production site at 'Truly Scrumpious' at Blubberhouses.
As Amy had run a Belgian Chocolate & Confectionery Shop in Harrogate it seemed almost perfect to stick to what we knew best, Chocolates, Sweets, & Home Baked Goodies!
Not content with the ordinary daily bread we decided to try some speciality breads along side them, so far our most popular loaves are Sun-dried Tomato & Parmesan, Spelt & Honey & Wensleydale Cheese & Red Onion Marmalade!
If you're ever in the Yorkshire Dales, come say hello!
