Your local food shop
Our Farm Shop takes pride of place at Rushfields. We have been regularly voted among the best in Sussex for high-quality produce. Our shop offers fresh, home-made, local and seasonal foods to inspire you. You will find a huge variety of delicious goods, from fresh vegetables and award-winning homemade pies to cheeses, artisan breads, gluten-free and organic ranges, and speciality groceries. True to traditional farm shops, we also have our own friendly butcher, Paul Channon, who provides the best local beef, lamb, pork, chicken and game.
Wherever possible, we source locally, reducing food miles and ensuring traceability. We complement this with fantastic products from further away, curating delicacies from artisan businesses and like-minded suppliers across the UK and beyond. By combining the best of both worlds, we are able to offer you delightful products without harming the environment. At the same time, we work on equal terms with the artisans and suppliers who provide us with delicious foods.
Because of our regional focus, we are able to offer only the best quality foods. We support local artisans who know how to make the tastiest bread, cheese or meat. What’s more? Here at Rushfields, we stay away from mass produced items, instead offering hand-made products that are made with the greatest of care.
SUPPORTING LOCAL FARMERS
Each year, the non-profit organisation Natural Partnerships Community Interest Company organises a competition to find out who is the best Sussex Food and Drink Farm Shop of the Year. Thus, the organisation tries to raise money and awareness for local food production. In 2015, our Farm Shop was voted as Sussex Food and Drink Food Shop of the Year, driving us to continue our ambition of supporting local farming and the food industry. Then in 2021 we won again! Come on over, and we hope you’ll see why we were named Sussex Food and Drink Farm Shop of the Year in 2015 and 2021. Our shop is open six days a week, from 9:00 am till 5:30 pm.
