Celebrating 150 Years

We are proud to celebrate our 150th anniversary this year and to mark the occasion in true Yorkshire style, we’ve created a one of a kind celebration pie! The anniversary pie is made in a traditional game pie mould, with hand raised pastry, locally sourced rose veal and York ham, produced from Appleton’s own pigs, which are reared on the family farm in Ripon. The pie will be available to customers from Monday 14th – Friday 18th of August to kick off our anniversary celebrations.

Owner Anthony Sterne said “Reaching our 150th anniversary is a very proud moment for Appleton’s. Despite the sad decline of many butcher’s shops in Britain in the past few years, we are lucky to be supported by fantastic loyal customers, who come to Appleton’s for high welfare local meat, prepared with care and great service. We have created the anniversary pie using a recipe resurrected from the Appleton’s vaults, and we hope many of our customers will join in our celebrations and try it this week.”

We have lots going on through the week in our four shops, including tastings and a scratch card competition! Make sure to visit us in Ripon, Wetherby, Boroughbridge and York, we look forward to celebrating with you.
