Great  Park Farm in East Sussex is a real 'find'  combining a well stocked plant nursery with a farmshop. Unusual plants, all in prime condition and a carefully selected assortment of local produce. 
In the heart of rural East Sussex, Redlay Farm Shop sells local fruit and vegetables, home made preserves and home reared meats. It's a real family business, with ponies in the paddock beside the shop and a herd of prime beef animals grazing the neighboring fields.
 

Taywell Farmshop on the road from Goudhurst to Cranbrook in Kent is set in blueberry fields - and they're going to try growing apricots and peaches, well worth a visit.

Well worth a trip: Haguelands is a farmshop with a difference, tucked away in beautiful Romney Marsh it has a butcher, fishmonger and lots of local produce. Find out more about it.

 

 

Food for thought:

The £20 you spend in a village shop, farmshop or farmers' market can grow into an 'investment' of over £30 in the area as your spend pays for local wages that are spent locally.

The £20 you spend in the supermarket ends up at Head Office.
