A LITTLE ABOUT US                                                                                                  


It was by chance that we began to breed pedigree rare breed animals! we took on a derelict walled garden in Sussex. After a lot of research we decided to clear the land using the most wonderful animals - pigs and  the closest piglets for sale were rare breed pedigree Berkshires. . . we have bred hundreds of pedigree Berkshires, Tamworths and Gloucester Old Spot pigs, Golden Guernsey goats, Wiltshires and Norfolk Horn sheep, Dexter and Longhorn cattle, geese, chicken and ducks.
We no longer breed rare breed animals, a very difficult decision for the whole family to make. Since 2012 we have concentrated on our online shop and embarked on our exciting new projects.

We are a family business and proud of our delightful team. Our shop is filled with fresh Kent produce and delicious food all made in our 5 star rated Good Food Shop Kitchen! Our stock is replenished daily and new things are made throughout each day, giving our customers a varied and continuously changing selection of our lovely food.

We source our ingredients and the products we sell in our shop from local producers who have supplied us with their amazing products for many years! Our loose leaf teas and coffees are supplied by the Kent & Sussex Tea and Coffee Company in Pluckley, Wobblegate from West Sussex supply our shop and tearoom with fruit juices, Hinxden Farm Dairy in Benenden supply us with milk, cream, cheese and yoghurts and David Catt & Son from Boughton Monchelsea supply us with fresh fruit, vegetables, herbs and eggs. Our delicious relishes, chutneys and preserves which we sell in our shop and use as accompaniments in our Tearoom are made by Galore! based in Bollington, Cheshire.

We would like to share with you some of our lovely customers comments. We are proud of the produce we sell and the food we produce in our own kitchen. We need to know if we get things wrong (or right!) and rely on everyone who shops with us, to tell us. . . . .

The supper last night went brilliantly - thank you so much for everything. It really is wonderful to know I can just drop you an email and all this high quality food magically appears!

Thank you so much for our simply delicious food, greatly appreciated.

Hi, just wanted to say that the quality of produce is as fabulous as I remember

Hi Karen/Rob, Those Pizza's WOW! Absolutely fantastic, thanks.

Fruit and veg boxes are excellent value. Lovely fresh produce and such a variety of different kinds fruit and veg thank you Karen and Rob. Keep up the good work the service is the best everywhere

Just to say how delicious the pizzas, sausage rolls, cheesecakes (I need your recipe!) and lemon cake were last weekend - all went down exceedingly well with us and my 2 hungry nephews!

I can't wait for my friends to arrive in the morning so I can show off all the wonderful produce! We don't have such things in London!! Except perhaps in Harrods foodhall. The bread, quiche and cake look absolutely beautiful.

The freezing temperatures gave us a perfect excuse for roasting one of your excellent free range fresh chicken, it was succulent, tender and tasted like chicken used to! For dessert we had chocolate crumble with your Kentish pears and raspberries, better than a picnic in the sun!

My kids voted the chocolate ice cream the best they had ever had and
they want more!

Just to say thank you for the delicious food you made for us to take to Cornwall. It was very much appreciated by all who ate it!!

Cheesecake last week was to die for by the way, one of the nicest things I've eaten in a long time.

a quote from My husband "This is the best steak pie I have tasted. Real short crust pastry. None of that flaky puff-stuff and the filling absolutely delicious". Praise indeed Karen, my mother-in-law was a fantastic pastry cook. I served some to guests the other day, they left only crumbs.

all food lovely as always - especially love the garlic bread -best ever tasted!

So thank you very much for adding a layer of quality to my kitchen which would be beyond me to achieve. I forgot to say that that Raisin & Cinnamon Loaf is absolutely gorgeous either toasted or cold. A winner!

The produce, meat and baking you brought to me in the middle of the storm on 23rd was all just wonderful. Every bit of it was perfect and added hugely to my ability to manage the whole catering bit of Christmas.
