The Balloon Tree Farmshop & Cafe
The Balloon Tree Farmshop & Cafe is a family run business just east of York.
Our company motto “Fewer Food Miles, More Farm Yards” encompasses the foundations in which our company is built. We strive to provide only high quality products for our customers using as many local suppliers as possible.
Under one roof, we house all kitchen essentials you could need for the week, we have an extensive fruit and vegetable department which houses some homegrown and locally sourced fresh produce. We have fresh bread daily from local bakeries in Goole and Haxby. The meat we supply comes from highly vetted and quality assured producers, we have worked with them for many years and with all our suppliers and regular customers have developed a relationship of trust that you can depend on any product bought from our store will meet every expectation.
Through the corona virus outbreak, we have had to adapt and diversify so to continue to serve customers but in the safest manner possible. When visiting the farmshop, we have implemented a variety of protocols from hand sanitiser on entry, to distancing marks on the floor and limiting the number of customers in the shop at anyone time.
For those who do not wish to enter the shop at all, we have set up a drive thru scheme. Here the customers will approach the drive thru, order some preset boxes with our team, pay from the comfort of their car, we will put the shopping in their boot, and visitors can drive away happy, safe and prepared for the week ahead.
We are also offering delivery to those in vulnerable groups within an 8 mile radius of the business. We have created an online form where they can submit their shopping list, we will pick it, take payment over the phone and deliver it to their door.
Fundamentally, we are a Pick Your Own Fruit Site, with a successful Cafe. We do plan for these to reopen (when is sensible and permitted to do so), but we first must ensure that we are able to do it safely. Watch this space.
