Bringing Local Fresh Food Right To Your Table
Fanfield Farm is an Ecological Community Farm in Arlington, East Sussex. We grow everything with practices beyond organic, and work hard to regerate the soils and environment around us.
Bringing fresh vegetables through veg boxes to East Sussex.
We produce local food. Growing with the older hand tool methods that mean we don’t need huge tractors or 100 acres of land. This means we can get the food on to your plate fresher, faster and whilst improving the soil we grow in, and keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible.
We are growing Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Courgettes, Peppers, Carrots, Rocket, Spinach, Watercress, Green Beans, Runner Beans, Leeks, Chard, Kale, Garlic, Potatoes, Onions and much more.
Throughout the summer season of 2020 we provided seasonal veg boxes of beautiful veg, grown with practices that go above and beyond organic standard. This Autumn and Winter we are delivering veg boxes to doors including a mix of our veg and other seasonal uk organic veg too!

Arlington, East Sussex
We have taken a big step and have purchased land to grow even more for the 2020 growing season. We have embarked on a journey to turn a field in to an ecological and regenerative farm in Arlington, East Sussex.
It is our mission to feed 200 families locally in the East Sussex area whilst regenerating the soil, reducing our carbon footprint and setting up an ecological future-proof farm.
We grow regeneratively!
We produce all of our crops regeneratively with standards that are often ahead of organic veg. Firstly, we don’t use any pesticides or chemicals; we use all organic matter, soil & compost.
The other part is that we are working hard to regenerate the soils and environment around us. Some older farming practices have caused some big problems globally, and we are working hard to not only grow sustainably, but to improve things and grow regeneratively.
We are happy to show you exactly how we grow, and the high standards we hold ourselves to.
