North Yorkshire farm shop launches ‘Guilt Free’ ready meals

The team at an award-winning farm shop have created a range of low-calorie ready meals.

Cedarbarn, based near Pickering in the North York Moors, have launched their ‘Guilt Free’ range available exclusively from their farm shop and aimed at those counting their calories. 

The new range includes four calorie counted dishes including Smoky Aberdeen Angus Beef Goulash, Sweet Potato, Lentil and Coconut Vegan Curry, Pork and Butternut Squash Meatballs with a Tomato and Fennel Sauce and a Chicken, Celeriac and Butterbean Stew.

Owned and run by husband and wife team Karl and Mandy Avison, the new range has been created using home grown and local sourced produce including the farms own Aberdeen Angus cattle.

Mandy said: “The restaurant quality meals are made by our chefs using home reared Aberdeen Angus beef, outdoor reared pork from Trotters, chicken from Nidderdale Poultry and fresh local and seasonal ingredients where possible.

Established in 1995, Cedarbarn began as a small PYO business by fourth generation farmer, Karl. Since then the business has grown to include a popular shop, award winning café and miniature railway as well as expanding their popular PYO to include seasonal produce including pumpkins.

Much of the produce reared and grown on the farm is used in products sold and served in the business and the couple have focussed on sourcing, stocking and supporting fellow local food and drink producers throughout.

Mandy continues: “In true Yorkshire style, the portions are generous, but each delicious and nutritious meal contains fewer than 375 calories. They’re perfect for people who are watching their calorie intake, but who don’t want to compromise on taste. In addition to being low calorie, they contain less than 4% fat and are additive free and the Beef Goulash, Chicken and Butterbean Stew and the Vegan Curry are also gluten free.”

The Guilt Free meals cost £3.99 each, are available either fresh or frozen and are suitable for microwave or oven cooking.
