Working with visitor businesses

Swaledale was looking particularly gorgeous last week when we set off to visit some of the businesses working with us on the project. We distributed promotional materials about this blog and also handed over the new Cow’us Code beer mats to Keld Lodge and the Farmers Arms in Muker. Finally we had a chat with Usha Gap camp site about providing their campers with interpretation panels about the cowhouses on their farm.

Local Businesses

As part of the Every Barn… project we hope to produce some bespoke interpretation for local visitor businesses. We’ve begun the process by dropping by┬ásome of these businesses to see what their customers want and how we might be able to help. We have already been really impressed by the visitor ‘offer’ available in Muker Parish and how enthusiastic business owners are about our project. Featured is the Farmers Arms in Muker who had the rather brilliant idea of table games disguised as beer mats. We’re sure we can come up with something along these lines that tell people some cow’uss stories in a fun way.
