On air with BBC Sussex!

We kicked off August with a short interview this morning on BBC Sussex Breakfast with Neil Pringle. Did you catch us? If not, check out the clip on BBC Iplayer – just skip ahead to 2hrs 42 minutes. We discussed an #eatsussex breakfast, the range of local produce availabile, #eatsussex challenges and adapting #eatsussex to different dietary needs (Nick and Jim are carnivores, Muir and Connie are vegetarian, and I’m vegan – we’ve got everything covered!)

For the demonstration breakfast, Muir cooked up a beautiful breakfast tart with local wholemeal flour, Sussex rainbow chard, intense little Sussex tomatoes and local dairy. There were Sussex chipolata sausages, sauteed mushrooms, and a whole host of gorgeous locally grown veggies and fruits to garnish. Let’s get one thing straight – there’s no depriving yourself when it comes to eating local! The crew certainly seemed to enjoy themselves…

(Mmm, if this is making you hungry, all of these local ingredients can be sourced from our website !)


“The rules?”, Neil asked us.

Well, here they are: the basic #eatsussex rules we’re following for the next month…


Coffee and tea are allowed for our sanity – but ONLY sustainably sourced and locally processed (we get our coffee from Edgcumbes and tea from MD Tea). Mesto Olive Oil is owned by Cate and Vasilis, who live in Brighton but own an olive grove in Crete and transport all of their own olives. We use this as a healthy alternative to butter (while still enjoying our melt-in-your-mouth, richly flavoured Southdowns Butter on occaison).

We’re excited about our food adventure – and we’d love it if you would join us! There are wonderful dishes, different produce, new cafes, restaurants and foods to discover and fall head-over-heels in love with. From time to time, you’ll be challenging yourself to leg go of old favourites – but you’ll be making way for something exciting, new and just as delicious. We’ll be posting on the things we discover to replace our non-local food loves to keep you updated.

It’ll be an eye opening month, and if you want to commit to the whole month or even just try one meal, let us know: Tag us in your pictures and posts (@finandfarm) and join us on a mouthwatering, soul-discovering culinary adventure…
