CEDAR BARN cafe and farm shop.Just 10 minutes for Granary and Stables cottages.

On Saturday, 30th March, Mandy, Chloe and the team will host an Easter egg hunt and charity train rides on the miniature railway at Cedarbarn in Pickering.

Farmer Karl’s excited to get the train running again, having just been running it for a couple of hours on a Sunday. He said: “We’ve got a new train, The James Cook, for the 2024 season, so fingers crossed the weather will be kind and we’ll have a good, family-friendly day and a great Easter egg hunt .

The Easter egg hunt is suitable for children under seven and costs £3 per child and the train ride costs £2.50 and is suitable for both adults and children.

The 600m miniature railway track passes fruit fields, an orchard and farmland and helps to connect children with where their food comes from.

We hope that you can join us.
