Rushlake Green Village Leaf

Local products, produce, providers and retailers

Return to front page

This section of Green Pages is dedicated to local food producers and local businesses that specialise in local, or authentic produce. This section also includes many Organic producers and retailers, which is an area we hope to expand further over time. With more and more interest in getting back to a more traditional pattern of shopping locally for food produced locally, in its natural season, Farm Shops have become increasingly successful as a way for Farmers to supply directly to their local customers. We already have several farm shops here in Green Pages. If you know of others we should feature, please let us know or ask them to contact us direct. And of course we include The Stores - in the centre of Rushlake Green itself

Please note: We are happy to provide space for local enterprises to spread the word about their products. However, as a voluntary community website, we can take no responsibility for the legality, quality or food safety of any of the products purchased from these businesses.

Badgers Mead farm / Kelly Bronze Turkeys

Our delicious free range eggs are available at The Stores, in Rushlake Green. The eggs come from our farm here at Badgers Mead, where we also rear completely Free Range bronze turkeys. Our turkeys feed on a diet of non-GM natural cereal, in which there are no additives, antibiotics or growth promoters. All the birds are hand-plucked and processed in the traditional way. Our non-intensive approach to eggs and turkeys means we can provide quality products and give our animals the benefit of a natural life. We sell from the farm gate and through local shops such as The Stores in Rushlake Green where our Kelly Bronze Turkeys are in great demand every Christmas.

Greenway Fruit Farm

The Greenway Fruit Farm, comprising 40 acres of sandy, free draining Sussex land, was first planted with apples & pears in 1951. Today, with minimal chemical inputs, we grow dessert apples, pears, plums and cherries to Farm Assured Standards, encouraging biodiversity and protecting the local environment. Greenway is still part of a marketing organisation supplying Marks & Spencer and Tesco but in recent years Graham Love, the owner, has built up a thriving local trade supplying Farmer's Market's, Brighton Wholesale Market, Farm Shops, Local Stores & Schools. Supplying locally means that our fruit can be picked ripe and sold fresh, which maximizes its taste, flavour & nutritional properties - and reduces the level of food miles & packaging.

Old Barn Originals

Old Barn Originals was set up to give new life to these interesting and useful solid-wood boxes that would otherwise be destroyed after use and sent to land-fill. Every Old Barn Originals box is created from an authentic wine or port case, used by leading producers to transport their fine vintages. And because they are sourced from only the finest vineyards and producers, Old Barn Originals are available in only limited quantities. A proportion of the profits from every Old Barn Original is gifted to the Benevolent Fund, for the benefits of retired vintners. Old Barn Originals boxes are ideally suited to a whole variety of storage, decorative and display solutions - the perfect place for your treasured collections, your important paraphernalia and your odds & sods. Stuff for the car, for gardening, for your computer, for your office, your studio, your workshop or your kitchen.
