  • Family favourite of ours. Easy to get to, not far from York. The fruit picking is great as there's so much variety and choice. My kids love the goats you can feed. There's also a cafe with a great outdoor play area. We usually buy a lot from the deli and butchers counters as well as fresh veg and fruit. Best pork pies we have ever had!
  • Visited the Balloon Tree Farm Shop & Cafe today for the 1st time! It is absolutely amazing! Staff were friendly helpful and professional and went out of their way to please me and my husband (who's celiac). Food was delicious and served fast even though the cafe was quite busy. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone!
  • A fantastic farm shop and café. There is a wide range of sausage rolls, pasties, cakes and bread in the shop. Also, you can purchase a wide variety of produce and a selection of pork, chicken and beef. The café has lovely food and the service is fantastic. A special touch is the willingness of the staff to carry a high chair to your table. The kids play area is small, but adequate for a few minutes distraction. The play area is suitable for children up to 7 or 8 years old. During the spring/summer, you can pick your own fruit/veg. Keen walkers and families may enjoy walking around the paths outside of the farm shop. They are suitable for pushchairs and for the most part seem level for wobbly walkers. Overall, the Balloon Tree provides a great day out for both old and young alike.
  • Great full English. Fresh meat and cream. Good coffee. Friendly service. Good atmosphere.
  • A great day out for the whole family. Delicious food in the restaurant with great service, a well-stocked farm shop, gorgeous little goats and pick-your-own fruit. The strawberries are the best I've ever tasted!
