we are growing!
WE ARE REBUILDING THE SHOP AND SO WILL CLOSE ON FEBRUARY 18TH.
WE WILL RE-OPEN MID MAY WITH A BIGGER SHOP,
MORE OF OUR OWN PRODUCE AND MUCH MORE LOCAL PRODUCE.
Groombridge Farm Shop is located at the top of Groombridge Hill on the A264, 4 miles west of Tunbridge Wells. The shop started out as “the asparagus hut” in 2001 and has grown over the years into the fully-fledged farm shop you can find there today. There is considerable off road parking, as well as a quick pull in layby for those wanting a quicker stop. The level situation allows access for wheelchairs.
The shop is devoted to selling local produce, with 90% of stock sourced from local farmers and manufacturers, located within Kent and Sussex. The shop sells both every day food products as well as more specialty products.
We accept credit cards.
Monday to Saturday – 9am to 6pm
Sunday – 10am to 5pm
We believe that “we are what we eat” and that our customers have an expectation of quality, freshness and local provenance, when they visit our shop. What we do not grow ourselves, we source from local farms, where possible. Other produce is from local businesses, which in turn source their ingredients from local farms. Quality, Provenance, Traceability; the three goals to which we aspire.
New Park Farm
We grow a wide range of produce for our shop; a mixed rotation includes grass for a stud and free range hens. With the use of modern technology; plastic tunnels, raised polythene beds and integrated pest management (the use of natural predators to control crop pests), we are able to keep the use of pesticides and artificial fertilizers to the bare minimum. We shall continue to innovate and grow new crops for the shop.
