Rob and I would like to advise all our customers that we will be relocating to North Wales this summer. Regretfully we were unsuccessful in our planning application to live on the farm which was crucial for us to enable us to grow our business and maintain animal welfare for all our livestock.
We have absolutely loved running our smallholding in Sussex and have been supported by the most wonderful and loyal customers for these last few years. We now want to take a new step forward with the business and we hope to carry on rearing our amazing goats and pigs from a larger, better equipped farm where we can be on site 24/7.
We are now running down our last items of stock and as we enter May 2017 will be doing some great freezer deals.
Please be advised that we have no more goats available but can redirect customers to another local supplier, please call us and we can hopefully keep you well stocked.
Our aim is to settle in for a few months and then return to where we left off and rear quality meat goats and pork pigs for online orders – watch this space!
Rob and I would like to say a huge thank you to all the support we have received from friends, family, customers and suppliers – we have met some amazing people who share a common interest in local, ethically reared and high welfare meat.
Please keep in touch and you can follow our Facebook page – Brambletigh Produce for updates and photos as we take on our new challenge.
Mel and Rob Hughes

As always, we will have fresh eggs, sausages, bacon and pies together with fresh and/or frozen goat meat and pork.
Brambletigh and many goat meat produces were dismayed to see recent articles in the news regarding the sale of ‘mutton dressed as goat’ through a number of restaurants in the South East.
As a local, direct producer we can reassure our customers that all our goat meat is either reared directly by us on the smallholding, or sourced through local farmers who specialise in goat meat – just like us!
We are therefore very pleased to confirm that all our home reared goat kids sent for meat in 2016 will have Pedigree Meat Certificates issued by the British Boer Goat Society which will prove the provenance of the animal, giving you 100% confidence that the meat you purchase will be the real thing!
Here is our very first certificate just to give you an indication of what you should expect when buying quality, and genuine, goat meat from a supplier.
As we count down to Christmas, Brambletigh will be at Hailsham Street Market this Thursday 10th December and we will have some special offers on frozen sausages, pork and bacon.
On Saturday 19th December we will be back with fresh goat meat, chipolatas, bacon, gammon and pigs in blankets.
We also have some lovely cheese baskets containing four cheeses from High Weald Dairy and a jar each of Wartling Wood Produce fig & cranberry chutney and red onion marmalade. The baskets retail at £22.50 and make a wonderful Christmas gift for any cheese lover.
Treat your family to the very best of local, traceable produce for a very special family Christmas dinner!
Don’t forget we are always happy to take orders – whether it’s half a pig or two rashers of bacon we’ll go the extra mile to help you. Just call, email or pop over to the market and have a chat. We can also order in cheese from High Weald Dairy, the last order date is 17th December.
