We popped up at Le Tennis in Maresfield to serve up some tasty Sussex Beef Burgers with local organic St Giles Cheese, organic Barcombe salad and fries to 60 Children and coaches to keep them fuelled for a day of tennis. The food was washed down with some local Wobblegate Apple Juice. A great way to fuel these super energetic guys with some local high quality ingredients from our lovely H Van.
Our next event at Le Tennis will be on Sunday 18th March 2018 for the Premier Team tennis event.. Come down if your in the area!

The High Weald Dairy is both an inspiration and a delight! The business had been operating since the late 80’s and started off with just a few sheep producing a a few litres of milk each day from the family farm in Duddleswell. It now is a much larger operation that produces delicious range of 15 different cheeses from sheeps and cows milk. Mark and Sarah Hardy are the husband and wife team who operate this fantastic Sussex business along with their team of cheesemakers and office workers. We use the St Giles organic and the Brighton Blue cheese on our burgers. Both offer a fantastic melting point and a delicious flavour.
I had the pleasure of attending a one day cheesemaking course run by Mark, Sarah and Gary and its a great opportunity to not only make (and eat!) cheese but to also tour the dairy and see how its all made, stored and packed.

You can call into the shop at the farm or at the many local markets and events listed on their site.

This 10 acre farm near Lewes produces the delicious Organic salad and veg which we use in our burgers and for salads for our private events and weddings. We love stopping off here, its a peaceful Sussex spot that really reminds us of how important this part of the 23m Burger journey is. Picking up freshly picked salad from Martin and his team is always feels a healthy countryside experience. Its a far cry from my early days in restaurants when the delivery lorries would turn up with veg from all corners of the globe. Our green salad changes every week depending on what’s growing, it offers great flavour along with the crisp freshness and is a key part of creating the quality and taste of our burgers.
Barcombe Nurseries supply veg boxes with free local delivery so get one booked to try them out!

Depending on the seasons it catches anything from Sea Bass to Whelks. The crew and boat are accredited by the Responsible Fishing Scheme, this scheme gives an assurance to the supply chain that fish from the vessel has been caught responsibly and sustainably.
