Farrah's was established in 1840 by John Farrah. The Original Harrogate Toffee was designed to clear the palate of the putrid taste of Harrogate's Sulphur Water, famous in the 19th century for it's healing properties. Original Harrogate Toffee is similar to both a Butterscotch and Barley Sugar. Farrah's use three different types of sugar, proper butter and a hint of lemon to give a unique texture and flavour. It is still made in copper pans and packaged in Blue and Silver Embossed Tins as it has been for generations, making it a memorable gift for any occasion.
