Food news for summer 2020!
Meat and produce
We are now stocking locally produced meat boxes from Carole and Kevin at Townings Farm, which is located 5 miles away on Chailey Common. Priced at £22.50 each box contains 4 burgers, 6 sausages, 4 Lamb koftas (flavoured with rosemary and garlic) and 8 Rashers of bacon. These boxes can be booked via the website but it must be at least one week prior to arrival, you can then pick up your haul from reception. Meat boxes have over 3 month shelf life in the freezer and can defrost after you arrive.
Alternatively, feel free to call us and place an order before you arrive.
On our doorstep we are also brilliantly well served by Holmansbridge Farm Shop. They are located 5 minutes down the road on foot or via the old railway track. The farm shop stocks a wide range of meats, deli food stuffs, fruit, veg and a wicked selection of cheeses including Sussex based High Weald Dairy and Bookham and Harrison ranges.
Drinks and lollies
We have also started selling Lickalix ice lollies (Lickalix are the world’s first ice lolly with plastic free, compostable packaging) so they fit our criteria of local forward looking products. Finally, we have sourced a range of cold soft drinks from Sussex based Folkingtons.
Pop up Swedish Hubbery Cafe
Fika is a Swedish word for stopping what you are doing. Having a break and enjoying a drink and homemade treat with your family, friends or colleagues. Fika is a hugely important part of Swedish culture and we love it.
During July and August The Hubbery Take Away Cafe will be open for drinks and Swedish cakes. They will be serving light lunch options, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm. It’s a 25 minute stroll away through the beautiful, neighbouring Knowlands Woods. We will be creating a wildlife rich route map that gets you there through the woods and back, without encountering the bears
Hopefully this will get you through your summer stay at The Secret Campsite, but if not, September is a great time for foraging throughout Sussex. We will write some more nearer the time and do have a read of an old blog we posted.
See you soon
