Durleighmarsh Farm Shop

Idyllic is what jumps to mind when thinking about Durleighmarsh Farm Shop – it’s set in beautiful, peaceful countryside on the Hampshire-Sussex border, providing a huge range of quality pick-you-own fruit and vegetables throughout the season. This makes for a wonderful stop to pick your very own produce for a side (highly recommend their sweetcorn) for your BBQ or some gorgeous, in-season English Strawberries to go simply with cream or in your Eton Mess. Whatever the weather though, you can be assured of the warmest of welcomes at Durleighmarsh Farm.

Sky Park Farm Shop

Located in West Harting, Sky Park Farm is a working deer farm that has evolved to offer a cafe, farm shop, butcher, adventure playground and farm trail, allowing visitors to explore the farm and meet the deer. Our farm shop specialises in local premium produce. Quality, provenance and sustainability are at the heart of what they do, cutting food miles and wasteful packaging while sharing the variety and taste of seasonal produce. We stock a wide variety of fresh and dry grocery produce, sourced where possible from our local suppliers, many of whom are from within 30 miles. Our Deli has a selection of delicious deli meats, cheeses and dishes freshly prepared in our kitchen, all available to take away.

Staunton Farm Shop

#ShopLocal is a clear ethos of this quaint and frankly quintessentially English farm shop. Staunton Farm Shop stocks  a variety of products, including fresh bread and vegetables, pickles, jams, oils, chutneys, ice creams and honey. Albeit, it’s extremely tempting to take the little people within the family to the neighbouring farm to explore and meet the animal, you don’t need to pay entry to the farm to visit the Farm Shop and parking is free for 20 minutes if you were making a quick visit.

Bowtell’s Farm Shop

With over 100 years of experience having been established in 1910, this traditional free-range farm set in the heart of East Tisted at Home Farm, sells high-quality pork, beef and lamb products. There’s no experience like it locally – this farm shop is situated on the working farm so essentially a shopper can pop into the shop, buy your goodies and then just the other side see the land on which they were raised; there is nothing better! The Bowtell Family have created something invaluable to the community and a wonderful shop where nothing is too much to ask.

It goes without saying that you will be spoilt for choice with Cowdray products – from delicious cheeses from on the Deli, freshly baked breads, cakes and pastries made by our team of in-house chefs or store cupboard choices handpicked by our knowledgeable team; all this produce deserves nothing but centre stage on your table.
