Otley The Market Town
Otley is a small rural market town situated towards the
lower end of the Wharfe Valley wrapped between the Chevin and rolling
foothills of the moors; dissected by the river Wharfe, Otley is the
natural gateway to the scenic dales .
Thomas Chippendale the famous cabinet maker was born in
Otley his statue can be seen standing in Manor Square next to the Old
Grammar School he once attended. The surrounding countryside is rich in
the old rural economy of Britain dependent on small scale family run
farms, in which livestock and arable production are evenly mixed.
Production is distributed through local abattoirs and markets. The
result has been a thriving rural economy, an abundant supply of
nutritious food and a self renewing countryside. The unique appearance
of our landscape results from this old economy, with hedges and
boundaries maintained to keep in livestock, and copses and coverts set
aside for hunting and shooting.
Our company was first established in 1881 by John Middlemiss, the
present owners great great Grandfather, from a Market Stall in the
adjoining square, moving into the present premises in 1900 Five
generations of the family¬ have now been providing the towns
people of Otley with quality meats and meat products for over 120 years.
