About South Brockwells Farm
Visitors are welcome at South Brockwells Farm which focusses mainly on seasonal produce, selling its homegrown asparagus from late April to mid-June and oven-ready game from September to February.
The farm is open all year round, Wednesday to Saturday inclusive, 10am to 5pm, and open daily during the asparagus season.
The farm shop which can be found just off the A26 at TN22 5QS – just follow the signs – also sells fare to compliment its own products, all being locally sourced and chosen for its quality.
In the run-up to Christmas, for example, the shop orders delicious award-winning turkeys from Bridgers Farm, which is on the outskirts of Hurstpierpoint, and is the only turkey farm in Sussex to hold the Golden Turkey quality standards kite mark.
The shop also carries a range of cakes from Cooks Field Home Bakes, and locally sourced fresh sauces, preserves, jams and jellies.
Fresh farm eggs from South Brockwells’ free range rescue hens can be found in the shop too and vegetables grown in the farm’s polytunnel.
David Douglas and his late wife Sherry moved to South Brockwells Farm in 1976 and now, as, David prepares for retirement, his two daughters Chrissy Wells and Sarah Robinson, and Chrissy’s husband Arron, are extending the family partnership.
There’s chance to watch lambing in the spring at their Lambing Live events and to explore the farm when the bluebells are out at their spring bluebell walk. Safe spaces make it great for children to run around letting off steam.
There’s also a livery business, and a cross-country course which is available to hire from late spring to autumn each year.
Horse shows are held, with the most recent raising about £1,900 for charity: Adrenal Cancer Support UK, and Kings College Hospital, London.
Animals on the farm include horses, sheep, Boer meat goats, and the free range rescue hens.
The quality of livestock means there is plenty for the family to celebrate. Most recently, for example, the whole family was delighted when sheep bred at the farm, by Chrissy, won second in class for Commercial Finished Lamb at the South Eastern Prime Stock Show at Ardingly.
Children from the farm also won prizes in the livestock judging and sheep handling classes at the show.
Game for sale includes pheasant, partridge, pigeon and local venison together with Arron’s own recipe speciality venison sausages and burgers, pheasant sausages, and meatballs.
Taster days are held giving people the chance to sample oven-ready game free of charge and watch cooking demonstrations showing how to prepare and cook recipes old and new.
Recipes of the week in the shop help with cooking tips too.
