Tuppenny Barn

Southbourne, West Sussex, United Kingdom

Tuppenny Barn wants people to have a connection to the food they eat.

The registered charity runs an education program in West Sussex and Hampshire, teaching people how to cultivate organic produce and how to harvest and prepare it for maximum nutritional benefits and flavour. School trips and after-school clubs teach children where fruits and vegetables come from and about the importance of establishing life-long healthy eating habits. The wider community is also invited to take part in on-site activities to become better gardeners and at-home cooks.

Tuppenny Barn always has sustainability in mind and works with nature, never against it. Food is grown using only natural fertilisers, such as manure and compost, and weeds and pests are managed without the use of chemicals. The shop, open every Thursday, offers fresh organic products, including bread, cakes, eggs, preserves, and fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers. 

Creating a healthier planet and better futures for our children.
