Would you like to join our team as a butchery apprentice?

We’re looking for an apprentice to help us to prepare meat for our busy farm shop and café – do you know anyone who’s looking for a rewarding career with great prospects?

“Having farmed in the area for and run the Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Café for almost 30 years, we know that the young people in the Pickering area are second to none and we’re passionate about creating career opportunities for local people,” said Cedarbarn’s co-founder, Karl Avison who rears Aberdeen Angus beef and Abermax Cross lambs in conjunction with Low Marishes farmers, David and Sam Beal.

“Some members of our butchery team have been with us for over 14 years. This shows that butchery offers a secure, rewarding career with plenty of scope for promotion.”
