Coopers Farm

Welcome to Coopers Farm

Coopers Farm, in Hadlow Down East Sussex, is a traditional mixed 'Wealden' farm in the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Coopers Farm is a working farm selling our produce directly from the farm, at local village markets, at local events and directly to local pubs and restaurants.

We welcome farm direct sales and also do local deliveries. We are currently farming beef, pork, chicken, turkeys and seasonal veg and fruit. We run the farm on organic and sustainable principles. We take great pride in managing the farm in traditional ways where farming and nature can work together in harmony. We hope you find our website of interest.

As we bunker down for the second weekend in a row because of storm Dennis life on the farm carrys on regardless. Cows are strawed up and fed. Pigs are also strawed up and fed. Chickens fed, watered and Eggs collected. Chris is braving Heathfield farmers market (so do pop along if your around up to 11.30). We are also on calf watch. Weather does not stop farming. However, Farm will be closed this afternoon from 1pm.

Update on piglets: Unfortunately the runt of the litter died over night. It was just too small and weak and another died we think from crushing as the sow sat down. (We do not create our pigs to allow free movement and natural behavior of nesting up). The rest are going really well but we have installed an extra heat lamp during this stormy weather.

Better pictures will be posted later.

Sorry for the lack of commentary tonight. Sleep deprivation, and the wet/cold conditions killed off any thought of live video. Our sow Derby did really well. 2nd birth and 12 healthy piglets. Runty is nearly a quarter size of the others so is at risk. Derby will now be allowed to rest and bond with her babies. Excellent job by Katie and Michael being on piglet watch. #GloucesterOldSpots #CoopersFarm #Sussex #LocalFood4LocalPeople
