Welcome


Laurel and Hardy

The Rybeck businesses were originally based alongside the Whitelass Beck between the market town of Thirsk and the village of South Kilvington in North Yorkshire, England.

Although the word Rybeck generally has Viking association, its origin in this case was more recent. When Laurence Barker moved from Northallerton he considered calling his new home Barbeck - Barker beside the beck - but that name was already in use. Instead he used his wife's maiden name of Rymer and Rymer beside the beck became Rybeck. The name was applied to the farm established there; to the businesses based at it and, in particular, to the Rybeck Herd of Pedigree British Friesian Cattle.
