U P D A T E 19th July 2021
No Change at the Cedarbarn

Following the recent lifting of restrictions, I wanted to update you on the decision we have made.
Due to the uncertainty and increase in case rates, we have listened to the concerns of our customers and team and have decided there will be NO CHANGE. We feel this is the right thing to do to protect you and the team.

Our team will continue to wear masks and we would respectfully encourage customers to do the same.
Sanitising gel will still be available and we politely ask you to make use of it.

We shall be encouraging social distancing and will continue to monitor the number of people in the farm Shop at any given time.

Access to the Cafe remains via the terrace with check in at the screened counter. Menus are still disposable.

Inside the Cafe screens will still be in place for the Summer and we shall be keeping the reduced number of tables so they are carefully distanced.

I am sure you will agree our amazing team have coped admirably in these very difficult circumstances,
not helped by wearing masks in the extreme heat! We are very grateful for your patience and support through this unusual time.

Sadly there has been a very small element of visitors who have not treated the team with the kindness and respect they deserve, therefore we shall now be operating a 'zero tolerance' policy for unnecessary rudeness or verbal abuse to the staff.

Thanks again for everything.
Mandy, Karl, Alison and the team xxx


If you have a Gift Voucher which has or is due to expire please do not worry, because of the recent situation all vouchers have been extended to the end November 2021

Due to current circumstances, I am afraid we shall not be doing the Vintage Afternoon Tea for the near future. If you have a Gift Voucher you are welcome to use it as a Monetary Voucher (£15.00) in either the Farm Shop or enjoy some lunch in the Cedarbarn Cafe.
Thank you for your understanding.

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.
