A NORTH Yorkshire farm shop is in the running for a national title after making the shortlist of the 2018 Farm Shop and Deli Awards.

Now in its 11th year of trading, Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Café near Pickering has been shortlisted for Best Farm shop.

The news comes as the shop and café prepares to expand its premises extensively this summer, alongside working with chef Stephanie Moon to develop new menus.

Established on a fourth generation family farm, Cedarbarn began as a small pick your own strawberries operation.

Mandy Avison, who runs the farm shop with her husband Karl, said: “ It is a great honour to be shortlisted for these awards, to see our shop and café ranked amongst the best in the county is incredibly rewarding. We’re very excited about our expansion and refurbishment this summer .”
