A PICKERING farm shop has doubled in size following a huge expansion.

Cedarbarn began life as a small pick your own strawberries operation, blossoming steadily into a farm shop and café committed to selling produce all sourced from within a 30-mile radius.

Mandy Avison, who runs Cedarbarn with husband Karl, said: “We have been open 11 years and are very excited after a six month expansion project to have now opened the extension to the Cedarbarn.

"Atkinson’s Builders have done a fabulous job with the design and build which doubles the size of the shop, and seats 40 more diners in the new garden room.”

She added that their new full kitchen is producing new menus and handmade ready meals both designed by award-winning chef Stephanie Moon.
