Pure Kent & Eckley Farm

Eckley farm is a family owned farming partnership growing arable crops in the Weald of Kent. The farm has been a Kent business since the early 1950s producing additive-free flour. The millers generally mill to order – they don’t mill large batches and store it so we often enjoy their flour within 24 hours of milling. They produce farm assured crops under the assured combinable crop scheme, part of the little red tractor farm assurance scheme. They are also members of Produced in Kent, a membership organisation dedicated to championing local food and drink.

Eckley farm also produces cold pressed rapeseed oil under the pure Kent brand.


Two Sun's Quality Fish supplies many residents and local businesses with fresh, local, quality seafood.

Most of the fish is caught by their own Two Suns and Arum fishing boats. They know where the fish comes from and how fresh it is. They use sustainable fisheries where possible and both of their boats are in responsible fishing schemes.

Stour Valley 

Stour Valley provide high quality game meats, a local business also recognised by the organisation of Produced in Kent.

Chegworth Valley Farm

Chegworth valley is a family run fruit farm established in the Kent countryside in 1983. The fruit is hand selected and pressed in small batches, often within hours of picking. The juices are then gently pasteurised to retain the nutritional properties and flavour of the fruit.

They also supply vegetables, salads and herbs all seasonally.
