Good food, grown well: Trenchmore is a mixed farm growing beef, apples, grains and chickens - the cattle eat the grass and apple pomace, the straw from our wheat is used to bed the cattle, the cattle muck is spread on the fields to help improve the soils and feed the crops.
A virtuous circle, allowing the family to improve the soils and grow more delicious, sustainable food. Including dry aged beef from their slow grown Sussex crossed Wagyu cattle, Silly Moo cider from their traditional cider apple orchard and heritage wheat, a mixed landrace grown from locally-sourced seeds. A new addition of table birds and egg layers has arrived in summer 2021.
They farm for flavour, and are delighted to have been a finalist for the Sustainable Food Made Good Supplier of the Year Award 2016 and winner of the Sussex Food and Drink Awards Farmers of the Year 2017. Rachel was a grand finalist for the Young Sussex Farmer of the Year in 2019.
While they don’t have a farm shop onsite, you are able to order products via their website and arrange for delivery or collection. Alternatively, they like to support local pubs, farm shops and cafes - a list of Sussex stockists is available here.
