DIRTY DASH

We are thrilled to report that the Dirty Dash raised £4500 for these two special local charities.
For more information please read on.....

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.

For more information and full race details please refer to the website
http://www.cedarbarn-dirtydash.co.uk or Facebook @cedarbarnfarmshop


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.
http://www.robstephensontrust.com

L.I.A.M
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.

Christmas Newsletter 2015

Newsletter Christmas

Dear all,
This is our latest newsletter, just to let you know what’s been happening at the Cedarbarn, events coming up, special offers & of course news from the farm, if you would like more regular updates why not follow us on twitter @cedarbarn or you can now find us on Facebook. Hope you enjoy it….

Christmas has arrived and I just thought I would take this opportunity to give you a brief review of 2014.

Great Taste Award
At the beginning of the Summer we were pleased to be awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of excellence for the 3rd year running and also two Great Taste awards – for our Old Fashioned Sausage, made in the butchery and our home baked Aberdeen Angus Steak Pie which is now a popular addition to our cafe menu and available in the deli .... both, well worth a try.

What a lovely summer it was…. For the most part, the weather was with us, our Strawberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants and raspberries were plentiful, delicious and the highlight on our Vintage Afternoon Tea menu. There followed a mild autumn and Farmer Karl was able to plant a further 15,000 strawberry plants...thank goodness for Wendy’s ‘Pilates for Blokes’ class (Wednesday night in the cafe) to ease off those aching muscles!!!

Cedarbarn on the BBC
There was great excitement at the end of June when a film crew arrived from the BBC to film at the Cedarbarn for James Martin’s Home Comforts, his new show due to be screened on the BBC in January. They were particularly interested in our Gooseberries, as James who used to help his grandfather grow them on his allotment when he was a child is determined to renew people’s love of them. They filmed in the Gooseberry field, all morning! Where Karl explained how to plant, grow and pick them. They then moved into the kitchen where Chef Mike demonstrated how to make his Gooseberry, Elderflower and Almond Tart which he developed for the programme. Following this they moved on to Chloe preparing the Vintage Afternoon Tea, which included the tart and interviewed the diners enjoying it. They then filmed some of our younger customers, from the local primary school, who helped farmer Karl make Gooseberry Fools, they then tried them and discussed whether they liked the Gooseberries! They were all absolute stars !!!!

This was then followed by a trip to Winchester as Karl & Chloe had been invited to film with James in his kitchen at home. They were so nervous but James put them at ease straight away, chatting about the Talbot, Malton and his garden... they were complete naturals!
He cooked the most amazing Mackerel en Croute with Gooseberry Chutney and we all got the chance to try it. Delicious it was too & what an experience!!!

Miniature Railway
In July, we received planning consent from Ryedale District Council for Karl’s dream of a miniature railway at the Cedarbarn. The extension to the car park, which was required in the planning, has now been done, Rogers Nurseries, have prepared a plan for the new orchard and in the spring, weather permitting, the groundwork will begin. We are hoping to be up and running by summer at the latest and judging by the interest we have received, a popular addition.
Here is what the press said;

Take a ride around the farmyard ... by train
By Karen Darley, Pickering Gazette and Herald.

Visitors to a farm shop could soon be viewing the surrounding fields from a train rather than a tractor. Cedarbarn Farm Shop, near Pickering, have submitted plans for a miniature railway track to take people around the farm.
Karl Avison, who runs the business with his wife Mandy, said the aim was to show visitors the food produce available “from food to fork” The 600 metres of track will take people from the farm shop across to the growing area where they can see the different fruit and vegetables we produce” he said “our aim is to enable visitors to get out into the fields and see firsthand the growing element of the farm shop”
Karl is a member of the 7 1/4 inch Gauge Society, the international organisation for people interested in miniature railways. “The plan is to invite members to bring their own steam engines to run them on the track, as well as our own engine” he added “it is also fitting that this site is where the Traction Engine Rally used to be held”
Karl said there are also plans to create a pond area, fruit orchard and memorial garden.

Solar Panels
In November, work began by Think Renewables Ltd. to erect 160 x 250w ground mounted solar panels at the rear of the Cedarbarn. This is now finished and was, 2 weeks ago plugged in, followed by some very dull days - Typical! Anyway once it gets going this should supply half of the electric for the Cedarbarn. Here’s hoping for lots of sun this year!

Awards
In September, out of the blue, we were delighted to receive a letter through the post to say we had been shortlisted for a Yorkshire Life Food and Drink Award 2014 for our Vintage Afternoon Tea. We were invited to an awards Lunch at Rudding Park Hotel, Harrogate where we enjoyed a delicious lunch and although we didn’t win, we were so proud to be in the running and were really pleased that our Afternoon Tea received a ‘highly commended’ from Yorkshire Life.

Also in September, we were shortlisted for 3 awards in the
Yorkshire Post / Deliciouslyorkshire Taste Awards 2014 in the categories of; Best Independent Retailer, Best Yorkshire Afternoon Tea and Best Bakery Product for our Gooseberry, Elderflower and Almond Tart. This was followed by a gala dinner in October at the Pavillions, Harrogate Showground. 10 of us donned our best frocks and suits to attend the evening celebrations which were hosted by BBC Radio 2 Food & Wine Expert Nigel Barden. We were over the moon & very noisy! When the winner of ‘Best Yorkshire Afternoon Tea’ was named as Cedarbarn. We were up against some of Yorkshire's finest and are so proud of our fantastic Cedarbarn team, it is so lovely for them to have their hard work recognised in this way.

NEWSLETTER JUNE 2014

Dear all,
Well.. after the lovely weather of the past week (until yesterday that was!) and the beautiful apple blossom around the herb garden there was a feeling of Summer in the air, so thought it was about time we kept you up to date with what’s happening......

The lambing season has now come to an end and the calving is going well, our first ‘cross’ calves from our Pure Aberdeen Angus cows and the new Simmental Bull are looking like little rays of sunshine in the field with their black Angus mums (have you seen the photos on Twitter and Facebook?)

This year’s asparagus crop started in good time with the mild spring; you will still find it in the shop, freshly cut every morning, until around the 21st June. We also have some beautiful Champagne Rhubarb ready, deep pink in colour and delicious......

The strawberries are now flowering and are looking promising for the middle of June (weather permitting of course!) and Farmer Karl has this week been planting 1000 pumpkin plants which will be ready in time for Halloween, when we will be holding a special Halloween Fun and Apple Pressing Day, including Pumpkin carving, Spookly the Square Pumpkin, tastings and a visit from the community apple press.

Friday 31st October – Apple Pressing day
Hedgehoggers Community Apple Press will be at the Cedarbarn for the day, don’t let your windfall or apples from your tree’s go to waste, bring them along and Elaine and Dan from Hedgehoggers of Seamer will press them for you, in exchange for a share of the juice – or an option on some cider in the near future. It was a bumper year for apples last year, so here’s hoping!

We are very proud to have received a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence (2014) for the 3rd year running, trip Advisor says;
“At Trip Advisor we understand the importance of traveller reviews – and today we are proud to recognise the Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Cafe for the exceptional feedback you have earned from travellers over the past year. The Certificate of Excellence is awarded to businesses who rank in the top 10% worldwide for traveller feedback. Congratulations on your accomplishment”
Stephen Kaufer (President and CEO, Trip Advisor)

Many thanks to all our lovely customers who have taken the time to write these reviews and also a big well done to the Cedarbarn team.

Lizzy and Dell - You may have noticed a couple of additions to the Cedarbarn family in the paddock with the cows, Lizzy and Dell - the horses. We were initially a bit wary about what the cows may do but we need not have worried, it seems 3 year old Lizzy is definitely the boss...in fact a bit of a diva really!!

We are very excited, to have been approached this week by the producers of James Martins new BBC2 Cookery Show. The series celebrates food and drink producers who are based in or around Yorkshire. James Martin is from Malton so they would like to feature a local business on the show. They are interested in the farm history, the family business side to it as well as our own produce and soft fruit particlarly. All being well filming will take place in the middle of June.

Newsletter Autumn/Winter 2013

Dear all,
This is our latest newsletter, just to let you know what’s been happening at the 'barn' events coming up, special offers & of course news from the farm, if you would like more regular updates why not follow us on twitter @cedarbarn or you can now find us on Facebook. Hope you enjoy it….

Although now well through Autumn and heading on towards Christmas, I did just wanted to take this opportunity for a belated brief review of the summer. What a beautiful summer it was…. Due to the lovely weather, our Strawberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants and raspberries were plentiful, delicious and the highlight on our new Vintage Afternoon Tea menu. We even managed to get plenty ‘jammed’ ready for Christmas.

Cedarbarn took to the airwaves
Having been shortlisted for 3 Deliciouslyorkshire Awards : Best Independent Retailer, Best Yorkshire Afternoon Tea for Chloe & Georgia’s Vintage Afternoon Tea and Best Fresh Produce for our home grown vegetables. It was a last minute dash down to London in August to the BBC radio 2 building after Nigel Barden Radio 2’s resident chef rang wanting to use our delicious Maris Bard new potatoes in a recipe on Simon Mayo’s drive time; duly delivered we were rewarded with a lovely mention by Nigel on the show that evening.
Chloe and Georgia were also invited on to Radio York in September, where they were interviewed live on Radio York for 20 minutes about their decision not to go to university but to learn through experience in the workplace and study part time courses alongside. They also talked about their Deliciouslyorkshire shortlisted ‘Vintage Afternoon Tea’ their idea and a project which they introduced into the Cedarbarn Café at the beginning of the strawberry picking season. Before the interview they were so nervous but took it all in their stride and came across really well, we were so very proud of them.

The end of summer also meant saying goodbye to our lovely Amy in the café, she has been with us since the age of 15, from the Cedarbarn opening, and is just part of the family, we miss her lots. However she has now moved closer to her dream of becoming a teacher, after graduating university with a B.A. honours in the summer she is now doing her teacher training in primary schools around the area and loving every minute of it.....we wish her every success!

We also said a brief goodbye and good luck to Cameron and Danny in the butchery who have both gone to their respective universities, definitely missed… but we are happy to say they will be back to help us out at Christmas.

On the upside we all said goodbye in style? with a Cedarbarn BBQ where the team held competitions including: giant jenga, twister and sumo matches with giant inflatable sumo suits ….the highlight being ‘Super’ Farmer Karl and ‘Bat’ Chef Mike in super hero sumo suits, trying to knock each other down …hilarious!

CEDARBARN IS AWARDS FINALIST FOR NATIONAL AWARD

We are really proud to say that we have recently been chosen as one of four finalists for a National Award in the category of ‘Own & Local’ from the National Farmers’ Retail & Markets Association (FARMA).
The FARMA judges are now on their visits up and down the country to make their final assessment of the candidates for all six categories of the FARMA Awards which will be presented at a gala dinner in Kenilworth, Warwickshire on 25 February 2014. The Awards are assessed by farm retail experts and former award winners who are looking for excellence in management, provenance and service as well as attractive presentation.
Rita Exner of FARMA, said, the ‘Cedarbarn is an excellent farm shop whose uniqueness comes from their own produce and carefully sourced local foods. Mandy and Karl and their team have created a distinctive, top-quality business that richly deserves its place in the finals of the FARMA Awards this year.’

Christmas
The cows are now tucked up and cosy in their shed for the winter and Christmas is heading towards us at an alarming rate, fortunately Alison is on the ball and having had to order Christmas stock in July, she now has a beautiful display and tasty array of delicious foodie gifts, Yorkshire hampers, handmade gingerbread houses and new this year Pintail Candle tins scented with wonderful aromas of Christmas including mulled wine, gingerbread and mince pie……

New at the Cedarbarn

Vintage Yorkshire Afternoon Tea
By Chloe & Georgia

Monday – Friday 2pm till 4pm – See full menu on our website. BOOK NOW

As seen in the Yorkshire Post - write up below;

‘YOUNG APPRENTICES’ HOPE FOR SWEET SUCCESS WITH START-UP STRAWBERRY TEA BUSINESS
Two Yorkshire teenagers are aiming to be the cream of the crop after setting up their own cream tea service at a Pickering farm shop.

Best friends and baking buddies Chloe Avison and Georgia Jackson have put their ‘cake obsession’ to good use over the summer holidays by setting up Vintage Afternoon Teas at Cedarbarn Farm Shop & Cafe.

The 19-year-olds, who have spent the last few weeks planning the special menu, baking and making all the cakes, scones and sandwiches by hand and undertaking market research, are passionate about setting up their own tearoom in the future. Chloe is taking a one-day-a-week course in bookkeeping and accountancy, while Georgia is splitting her time between studying patisserie at York College and baking at Cedar Barn three days a week.

The Vintage Afternoon Tea, served Monday to Friday 2pm-4pm on vintage china and pretty three-tier cake stands, will offer four different types of sandwiches including smoked salmon & cream cheese, the farm’s own Aberdeen Angus beef, Cedar Barn free range egg and Wensleydale cheese & chutney, as well as the traditional scone, jam and cream, a savoury quiche and a trio of mini desserts made up of fools, shortcakes, cheesecakes and tarts – all made with local, seasonal produce.

Star of the new summer tea menu will be the farm’s tabletop strawberries, which, thanks to this year’s changeable weather, have grown from the normal ‘7’ on the Brix fruit measurement scale to a gigantically juicy ‘10’!

The plucky pair, who have known each other since secondary school, conducted their market research by visiting several food fairs and tearooms. “By the end of the first week we must have eaten around 8-10 cream teas – but it was all in the name of good business research of course!” adds Chloe.

Ryedale Show - Cedarbarn will be at Ryedale Show this year, Tuesday 30th July you will find ‘Butcher Bob’ at the Deliciouslyorkshire Show ‘Kitchen’ where he will be presenting a butchery demonstration at 2.30pm, so please come and say hello.

Holmes and Watson The Final Tour
Review by Broadway Baby ...

“Excellent!” I cried “Elementary” said he

The premise of the play is a re-telling of The Case of the Prime Minister, the Floozie and the Lummock Rock Lighthouse. From the title of this case and that of the Satsuma Stone, the bedrock of this production is comedy.
Julian Finnigan and Dominic Goodwin respectively as Holmes and Watson give an outstanding performance. From the outset the production is first class in its set, costume and narration from Holmes. Finnigan excels as the straight man Holmes whilst Goodwin’s Watson is sheer comic excellence – characterisations that are spot on and handling of the audience that reveals a seasoned and skilled actor at work, comfortable with breaking the fourth wall to include them as part of the show. Indeed, they are encouraged to feel at ease throughout the play – happily following the journey as Holmes relates a case within a case again utilising the spectators who become suspects of a crime within the parameters of the theatre.
Expertly written, it uses the basis of Conan Doyle’s canon with the two well-known characters that most audiences would be able to recognise, but also constructed to still work for those without any knowledge of the original.
With so many versions of Holmes and Watson this performance stands out not only as a great homage to Conan Doyle, but also as a stand-alone work of art. It confounds surprises and amazes, as would an original case by the creator of Sherlock Holmes.
A truly magnificent production, guided through the expert hands of two masters of comedy on stage.

Holmes and Watson Discovered in North Yorkshire!
Review by Daphne Franks

The satnav (whose name is Sheila) took us on a remarkably interesting route on the way to Masham, in North Yorkshire. Once we got to Harrogate we thought it would be Ripon and then on to Masham, but oh no, she had other ideas. We went through winding, narrow country lanes passing farms, snow-covered fields and generally The Middle of Nowhere. All very pretty but I don't know why Sheila chose this route. We suspect it was revenge for ignoring her advice to go the simple way, up the A1.

Finally we arrived in Masham which is a lovely old market town with a proper town square in the middle and a proper fish and chip shop on the square. Fish and chips eaten outside in the slightly smoky fresh air - - fantastic!

We were going to see a play in the solid old Town Hall. Angus and Ross Theatre Company, performing Holmes and Watson - The Farewell Tour: a comedy by Stuart Fortey.

Julian Finnigan was playing Sherlock Holmes, and the play was directed by my friend David Robertson. As the writer, Stuart Fortey, is also a friend of mine, it would have been one of those occasions which can be really tricky if you hate the play.

In John Nettles' autobiography (him of Bergerac and Midsomer Murders) he says that if you go to see a friend of yours in a play, and it's terrible, and you know your friend's going to be touring in it for the next six months, then there's only one possible thing you can do when you meet your friend afterwards. And that is to look him in the eye, shake hands firmly, and declaim "Well done!"
Last night was not that kind of occasion. The play is hilarious: David's done a great job of directing it and the actors perform it brilliantly.

Sherlock Holmes is on a farewell lecture tour to demonstrate some of his greatest cases before taking a well-earned retirement. He is accompanied by Dr Watson, Inspector Lestrade and Mrs Hudson. Unfortunately, however, the set and props have been left behind in Hull, so Dr Watson has to improvise a set and props for the demanding Holmes, using whatever comes to hand.

Also, there are more parts than actors to play them so Dr Watson's acting abilities are called upon to play such roles as a Cockney floozie. Dr Watson is not, perhaps, a terribly good actor - though Dominic Goodwin, who plays him, fortunately is, and excels in his portrayals of "Dr Watson as the Prime Minister", for example.

The play has that glorious thing - a plot which seems complicated but is really easy to follow. Witty lines. Splendid comic timing. Julian Finnigan's coolly rational Holmes is a wonderful foil for Dominic Goodwin's Watson.

I loved it, and so, judging from the smiles and laughter and applause, did the rest of the - large - audience.

Stuart's done a very clever thing here - he's written a splendid play that doesn't need a van to tour it about, because it has a minimal set and a minimal number of actors. I hope that it will tour more widely after this initial outing.

If you're anywhere near any of the venues, do go and see it. It's a grim old winter and we could do with some fun.
