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.
