North Yorkshire Family Farming Business Wins Regional Taste Award
The team at a Pickering farm shop and café is celebrating after winning a prestigious regional food and drink award for the fourth time.
Members of the Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Café team were presented with the award for Best Use of Local Produce on a Menu at the Deliciouslyorkshire Taste Awards during a glittering ceremony in Harrogate on 7th November.
Cedarbarn's owners, Karl and Mandy Avison, were joined by five of their 50-strong team at the event.
"We rear, grow, bake and make 80% of the food on our menu and source the remainder from local businesses where possible. We're very proud to win this award again and would like to thank our team for making it possible," said Mrs Avison.
Commenting on the award, the judging panel, comprising industry experts including chefs, broadcasters, writers and buyers, said:
"The Cedarbarn café has stayed true to its Yorkshire roots with top quality, healthy, fresh food with impeccable provenance. Whether it's home grown or reared, made in house or sourced from local artisan producers, the field to fork ethos is proudly communicated to its customers."
