Our Farm Shop
Our award-winning Farm Shop offers more Sussex-produced food and drink than any other. Our passion for locally sourced food and our commitment to constantly evolve, means you’ll find something new on our shelves each and every week.
Over 60 Years of Food and Farming
We strive to raise, create, and select only the very best for our customers. We and other like-minded small-scale producers in Sussex work hard to bring you the finest meat, cheese, free-range eggs, milk, pickles, preserves, seasonal fruit and vegetables and much more besides.
Local Growers, Farmers & Makers
Our hard-won and much-valued partnerships with local growers and farmers are key to us offering the finest selection of Sussex produce available anywhere. This not only supports the growers and makers, but guarantees the freshest ingredients and reduces food miles. Better for you, better for the environment. If we cannot source from Sussex, we seek out the very best of farm and farmhouse produce from the rest of the British Isles.
Catered to your dietary needs
We also offer a range of organic produce and alternatives for those with special dietary needs, including gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan. If you have any other dietary requirement that we do not currently cater for, please let us know and we will do our best to help.

“I just love the farm shop and the cider barn. Many varieties of cheese, hot delicious pasties and extra-large eggs are just a few of the items in my basket when I visit. Oh, and meat from the butcher too. Lovely.”
Trudy, 2020 Google review
Chat cheese with our knowledgeable deli team to find the ultimate addition to that special cheeseboard, perhaps High Weald Dairy’s – Sussex Marble, Brighton Blue or St. Giles, Traditional Cheese Dairy’s – Scrumpy Sussex, Lord of the Hundreds, Olde Sussex or Burwash Rose, or Nut Knowle Farm’s – Sussex Yeoman, Wealdway or Gun Hill Smoked. We also have great cheeses from the rest of the British Isles and further afield. And great cheese deserves a great biscuit, or cracker, or wafer, or oatcake and we have a huge range. Why not try our own Middle Farm chutney as an accompaniment and if you need something a little special to pair, by way of port or sherry, we can help with that too.
Seasonal fruit and vegetables
An astonishing range of distinctively rich tomatoes are supplied by growers like Gary Griffiths of Nutbourne Nursery.
Fresh-cut and slender, our asparagus spears come from local growers in Little Horsted.
At apple harvest each year we WOW our visitors with a glorious array of locally grown fruit of the highest quality from well-established growers like Chris Dench in Flimwell, David Knight in Pembury, and Matthew & Carol Wilson in Robertsbridge.
Love apples? How about something with a little more… zing?
