Pickering farm shop wins rural business award

The team at a North Yorkshire farm shop and café are celebrating after winning a prestigious regional business award.

Pickering based Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Café won the award for the best Farm Shop in the sixth Yorkshire Post Rural Awards, which took place at The Pavilions in Harrogate.

Co-founder, Mandy Avison said: “We’re over the moon to win this amazing award. We faced tough competition from bigger businesses, so we’re surprised, but delighted to win!”

Starting out as a small PYO strawberries operation from a caravan 26 years ago, Cedarbarn is now a thriving farm shop and café that sources a large percentage of its produce from its own and a neighbouring farm, supplemented with products from a number of local suppliers.

The award follows a successful summer for the team who have also been shortlisted for the York Press Family Business award as well as reaching the final in two categories in this year’s Deliciouslyorkshire Taste awards, both of which will be announced later this month.
