Tom Mellor – Wold Top Brewery
A farmer by trade, Tom lives and farms at Hunmanby Grange, in a beautiful part of Yorkshire where the Yorkshire Wolds roll down to the sea.
In 2003 when farm incomes were falling he looked at diversifications to ensure the future of his family farm and considered what they did best. They grow excellent malting barley (there are two maltsters in the area), and have their own supply of pure chalk filtered water from a borehole deep in the chalk and putting these two things together the Wold Top Brewery was born. Tom’s farming background puts him in an interesting position as both a supplier and customer to the maltsters. All of their malt is home or wold grown. They are actively working to preserve the environment with the Wold Top Wood, an environmentally friendly farming policy, and electricity is provided by two wind turbines.
A great believer in supporting the local community, Wold Top Brewery employs locally, hosting their own folk festival, supporting other music festivals and local theatre and of course promoting good Yorkshire Beer.
