The Farm Shop and Cafe offer our own fruit and fresh, good quality local produce.
We pride ourselves in sourcing only the best from local providers; other farm shops, butchers, bakers, cheesemakers, dairy, smokery, fishmonger, to name but a few.
We sell a wide range of produce in our farm shop. As well as our own fruit, jams, jellies,chutneys and our apple and pear juice, we sell fresh seasonable vegetables, local eggs and honey (from hives on the farm) cheese, dairy, meat and game. We sell bread from Flint Owl, the celebrated artisan bakery in Glynde, plus popular cakes baked in nearby Framfield, and much more.
The Cafe has a menu to suit all tastes and we cater for all dietary requirements including vegan, gluten and dairy free options. All our food is cooked to order using the produce we sell in the shop, including our own fruit. Our Scotch Eggs and Vegetable Tartlets are renowned.
We also have a well-stocked fishing lake which has been popular with anglers for many years.
We hope to see you soon.

The winter months mean several weeks of pruning. Bob, James and Lewis are busy making their way around the orchard and think they will finish in record time this year.
We are thinking of running some pruning courses in the near future and would love to hear from you if you'd be interested. Apples and pears are pruned in the winter and summer months, plums and cherries are pruned in the summer only.
Or, if you would like any advice as to how to prune your particular tree, please don't hesitate to contact us, we'd be happy to help.
The Wassail is a traditional celebration to ward away evil spirits from the apple orchard to ensure a good harvest in the Autumn.
The Rev Peter Owen Jones will bless the orchard and ward away the Evil Spirits, and our only job is to make a lot of noise to help to properly scare them away. Morris dancing is traditionally part of the celebration and Spirimalwgus Morris Border Dancers are kindly joining us again this year .
We will meet at the car park at 12.00 and return there after blessing the orchard.
We will then provide refreshments and there will be more entertainment from the Morris Dancers.
You can hire the Cafe during the day on Monday or Tuesday for Breakfast, Lunch or Tea. We will provide food and drinks to your order, and leave you in peace to hold your meeting.
Please ask for more details.
Send us a message if you'd like to know any more information, or if you'd like to place an order, or to book a table at the Cafe.
We look forward to hearing from you

"We spend a lot of time down there relaxing in the cafe, the food is delicious and all locally sourced with the ingredients also being available to purchase in their gorgeous farm shop. The ladies who run the cafe are so lovely, we always feel like we're visiting friends whether we're popping in for coffee and a flapjack (the twins' favourite) or brunch."
"Called in by chance on a day walk in Sussex. Bought a flapjack to eat on my way which was DELICIOUS. Also, sour dough bread from a local bakery and quince marmalade - home made on the farm. Also, DELICIOUS. The shop was full of gorgeous looking fruit, vegetables, meat, cakes, preserves etc etc. I was only sorry I was walking and couldn't carry more! A very friendly team and a beautiful location. Right on the Wealdway. If you are walking that route and in the Buxted area, then I recommend you plan to stop off at the Oast Farm Shop!"
"I've finally decided to shop here for fresh food! As me & my 3 year old walked in there was an instant warm welcome & my daughter didn't stop chatting. I now shop here at least once a week & love it. Very helpful & knowledge of how to cook certain things. You're doing a great job. See you soon ladies. X"
