Cedarbarn Farm Shop celebrates 10th anniversary
with 5km charity Dirty Dash farm challenge

Fundraising for two Yorkshire children’s charities close to their hearts

Award-winning farm shop Cedarbarn celebrates its 10th anniversary on 28th May 2017, and will mark the occasion with a ‘Dirty Dash’ farm challenge to raise money for two local children’s charities.

The much loved Yorkshire farm shop will host the 5km Dirty Dash on their farmland, designing a 3 stage race rammed with mud, mayhem and plenty of farm themed obstacles, with the help of local personal trainer Paul Piercy. Challenges will include tyre hopscotch, a silage sheet slide, hay bale clambering and a ‘strawberry crawl’ through metres of netting.

Mandy Avison, who owns the farm shop with husband Karl, said “We are very proud to be celebrating ten years in Pickering, and wanted to do something good fun and positive to mark the occasion. We have picked two charities which mean a lot to us and we hope many locals and fans of the farm shop will get involved with the Dirty Dash to help us fundraise.”

The Dirty Dash will raise money for two local children’s charities, the Rob Stephenson Trust and L.I.A.M. The Rob Stephenson Trust was established by his family to help children to take part in sport, following his tragic passing. L.I.A.M was set up in memory of young Yorkshire musician Liam Miller, and provides grants to young people pursing artistic or musical disciplines in higher education.

“We are very grateful to local businesses Hatfields, Land Rover, McClarrons Insurance, Wold Top Brewery, Raisthorpe Manor, NFU, Jones Partnership & HPE who are all sponsoring the event. We’d also like to thank our kind neighbours who are allowing us to use their land for parts of the Dash.

Taking part in the Dirty Dash costs £25, with all money raised to be split equally between the two charities.

The Rob Stephenson Trust
The Trust was been set up by Sam, the brother of Rob Stephenson, who was sadly taken whilst enjoying a night out in York with friends.
Rob had so much fun being part of local sports teams that Sam wanted to put something back so other young people could also enjoy these opportunities. The Trust hopes to enable young people to be able to participate and enjoy the friendship and camaraderie that sport brings, both at home and abroad.

The charity was set up in memory of Liam Miller, who was tragically killed in 2015.
Liam was a passionate artist and musician and as such, the mission at L.I.A.M. is to provide grants to underprivileged young people who are going on to higher education, studying artistic or musical disciplines.

Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Café

Welcome to Cedarbarn, where we're passionate about growing, cooking and eating fabulous food!

Our award-winning farm shop and café is food heaven… but our produce doesn't just taste great; we're proud to say it's locally sourced as far as possible, with much of it grown on our own farm. Nearly everything we sell or serve has been produced right here in beautiful North Yorkshire, whether it's our own fresh meat, Scarborough fish, seasonal fruit and vegetables or delicious deli products.

Cedarbarn is run by husband and wife team Karl and Mandy Avison, along with General Manager Alison Riley, who has grown up in the business, her father was a well known greengrocer on Leeds Market for many years. Karl’s family has farmed in the Thornton Dale area for over a century, and Mandy has years of experience in hotels and catering, so they make the perfect team! The business is a real family affair, with Karl and Mandy’s daughter Chloe managing the shop and their niece and nephew working in the business, even Karl’s mum lends a hand in the kitchen.

Our aim at Cedarbarn is very simple; to bring you top-quality, healthy, fresh food with impeccable provenance and as few food miles as possible. We're inspired by our love of farming and also care deeply about our impact on the environment - so all our operations are as eco-friendly as possible.
