Welcome to our brand new mini Farm Shop at Lime Cross Nursery!
Everyone at Lime Cross Nursery and Olive’s Cafe cares about what we eat, and who we source our produce from. We like to ‘Eat happy’. So we thought you needed to share a slice of the good stuff!
We have created a little corner in Lime Cross where you can come, sample, peruse and purchase some of the finest local cheeses, milk, bread, free range eggs, fruit and vegetables, yogurts, free range meats, wine, apple juice, chutneys, preserves and speciality items made by our kitchen like Sweet chilli sauce or sage butter.
We are working with some amazing, dedicated, thoughtful and conscientious farmers and producers from around Sussex to bring you a fine selection of daily essentials that will not break the bank, but are from ‘Happy animals’.
What we mean by ‘Happy animals’ is just that – happy! Keely, our resident vegetarian and crazy animal loving lady is making sure that all the produce that we sell in the farm shop, comes from producers she has met, where she has visited the farm and the animals to make sure that they are free range all year, fed on glorious natural foods, are kept and managed properly and that the farmers are working hard at sustainable farming.
So far we have met Andrew Knowles at Trenchmore Farm who produce Sussex/Wagu beef and also some cider, we have met Will from Sheffield Farm and are off to meet his lovely pigs in a few weeks when he gets back from his holiday. I met recently with Graham from Deerview who produce some glorious preserves and chutneys, and also the lovely Marion from Court Lodge Organic farm who make the most delicious yogurts that we will be stocking from next week! We purchase from a few other local farms, and we will be off to see them asap!
We only want to stock the Farm Shop with products from people we know and have met, thus who we trust to bring us the best possible products to pass on to you, our glorious customers.
We also have begun our takeaway menu which includes our frozen meals – which is simply home cooked delicious meals, freshly frozen for your convenience! You can pop the meals in the microwave for a few minutes, or into the oven for a little longer and you have a home cooked meal in minutes! Here is what’s on offer for our takeaway menu currently:
