Rigg & Furrow
A fantastic farmhouse brewery in Acklington, Northumberland. One of our favourites, Rigg & Furrow produce fantastic craft ales, giving a new lease of life to their milking parlour. Originally brewing for thirsty farm workers during the summer months, they are now producing new and innovative beers for all of us to enjoy.
A family run farmhouse brewery celebrating the best of home-grown Northumbrian and British produce. Because of this, they make a welcome addition to our range of luxury hampers and gifts. Every month we celebrate one of our fantastic producers and this month we are celebrating Rigg & Furrow. Because we know you can’t go and sit in your favourite beer garden, relax and enjoy a good beer at this time. So, instead we are bringing these high quality Northumbrian craft ales to you. Enjoy in your very own beer garden or send to someone who deserves a bit of relaxation 🙂
Where it all began
So, how did Rigg and Furrow begin? The venture started in when Theo, a former music teacher and accomplished home brewer, from London, married a Northumberland farmer’s daughter Pippa. Wondering how to make use of these wonderful old farm buildings which were no longer in use, the couple then decided to set up a farmhouse brewery in 2017 along with father, Robert, and mother, Louise. So, the Rigg and Furrow journey begins…
The Rigg & Furrow Tap Room
They have seen enormous success in supplying to local pubs, restaurants and independent resellers. Of course, they feature throughout our range of luxury hampers and gifts. They then went on to open their very own fully licenced brewery tap room on their Acklington farm. Providing a unique and enjoyable social space to the locals and surrounding villages. Hosting family friendly afternoons, partnering with local food and catering and of course providing their fantastic range of beers.
Whilst we know we can’t enjoy the tap room at the minute, we also know we are among many who can’t wait to see it return. But in the meantime like the rest of our very talented producers, they are finding alternative ways to provide their products. They are offering a click & collect whilst there tap room is temporarily closed.
