It will be one of the most enjoyable and memorable days you will have and no doubt will want to return.


The Medforth family have been farming at Raisthorpe since 1969. A typical wold farm, Raisthorpe grows wheat, barley, oil seed rape and potatoes. David and Julia took over the business in the late eighties. They have two sons, Oliver and Edward who are both involved in the business.

Through the late nineties and early noughties they developed the shoot and built the shooting lodge which was used during the shooting season. To extend the shooting through the spring and summer months, Raisthorpe Flyers was established – simulated game shooting.

Around the same time, Julia was making raspberry gin for the shoot day’s elevenses drinks. The raspberry gin became so popular that people were asking to buy the gin! This is when Raisthorpe Fine Foods was developed. Both family run businesses run alongside each other and work together to make your day enjoyable.

More About The Flyers

Based in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds, Raisthorpe Flyers provides exceptional simulated game shooting that rivals real game shooting. The 1000-acre estate boasts fantastic terrain, enabling challenging shooting for the experienced shooters and easier shooting with stunning views for the non-experienced. Despite being over twenty miles from the nearest grouse moor, Raisthorpe Flyers boasts a full line of eight solid stone grouse butts where we can throw incredibly exciting and realistic grouse like targets, which includes throwing them in packs! We also have a line of sunken butts where our rabbit drive takes place, this was a new addition for 2015 and has proved incredibly popular with our teams. Raisthorpe offer different types of days including Corporate, Double Gun, Group and Syndicate. Please click on the links for more information about the different types of days.

The Lodge

There is a custom built traditional shooting lodge where the day begins, ends and lunch is taken.  The hospitality at Raisthorpe is renowned and is complemented by their sister company, Raisthorpe Manor Fine Foods who provide food and a fantastic range of drinks, including gin and vodka and fruit based liqueurs.
