Local Food

High Weald Dairy

High Weald Dairy’s cheese makers craft a delicious range of award winning cheeses from organic and non-organic cow’s milk, organic sheep milk and most recently goat milk.

The conventional and the Organic cow’s milk come from local farms. The sheep milk is supplied by several sheep milking units, the largest milking over 700 ewes twice every day, and our goat milk comes from Kent.  The cheese is all made in our modern dairy on the farm and we only use pasteurised milk to make our cheese.

Our cheese is suitable for vegetarians as we only use vegetable rennet. We do not use artificial ingredients or processes. We are also certified by the Soil Association and are members of the Specialist cheese association and are SALSA ACCREDITED and Audited.

Our cheeses are available to buy online, at local delicatessens, farm shops and independent food outlets.

Cocao Loco

Cocao Loco live, breathe, dream and sleep chocolate but it has to be Fairtrade and organic all the way!  We are proud to be a great British business operating in the heart of West Sussex at our premises, the purpose-built and aptly named Chocolate Barn.  Our chocolate is single origin, lovingly handmade in small batches by skilled chocolatiers.  It is superb quality, artisan, tasty, scrumptious and although we don’t often enter competitions it has won many national awards.

Our range extends beyond bars and into exquisite truffles, big fat milk, dark and white chocolate buttons, intensely rich and dark chocolate brownies, nutty flapjacks, cookies and so much more. We make everything by hand for you with the same painstaking attention to detail.

Bean Smitten

Bean Smitten was founded in June 2014 by Darren Tickner, a former finance executive who became fascinated by the world of speciality coffee.

We are located just south of Tunbridge Wells on the Kent/East Sussex border. We roast only premium (speciality grade) coffee.  Always fully traceable and fairly traded.

At the roastery,  we hand-roast batches no more than 6kg at a time on our Giesen W6A roaster. We cup (taste) the coffee each time we roast and play with the roast profile until we are satisfied we have achieved the optimum balance of taste and mouthfeel.

We roast to order, so our product is always fresh. Well sell our coffee in 250g and 1kg bags. Whole bean or ground to your specification.
