Spring is in the Air!

Well, Spring is really on the way now and at Durleighmarsh Farm we are busy with ploughing and planting.

With possibly only a few weeks to go until our delicious Asparagus starts, we are looking forward to another bumper crop! Our earliest start date for Asparagus is April 9th.... but our latest start date is 2nd May..... it all depends on the weather and in particular, the soil temperature. So watch this space for news. We hope to start picking our early Strawberries by the end of May Bank Holiday so there is lots to look forward to!

We have just started picking our Rhubarb and also have some Curly Kale and Cabbages in the Farm Shop at the moment. With delicious local fare including Rother Valley Organic Meat, smoked fish from Weald Smokery and wonderful cakes from Farmhouse Cookery and Country Cakes, Jersey cream and ice-cream from Meadow Cottage Farm, there is plenty to enjoy before our PYO season and Asparagus season starts!

We are open Monday to Saturday 9 am till 5pm and Sundays from 9am to 1pm and from Sunday 3rd April we are open 9-5:3o every day!
