Spring has sprung across the Ashdown Forest – its BBQ Time!


Spring has sprung and we have warm weather continuing into the weekend. Could it be time to have a BBQ before the end of April?

Drop into Coopers Farm in Hadlow Down for great sausages and burgers and a selection of their own home grown vegetables. Don’t miss their new flavour – Fanfare sausages! www.coopersfarm.com

Perryhill Orchards in Hartfield is a traditional Farm Shop selling a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as local apple juice, fruit wines and a large selection of ciders. Try something different and take home some chilli cider! They also have an on-site butchery selling a range of fresh meat, pies and BBQ specials.

If you’re looking for a BBQ with a difference or an unusual gift for a special occasion, consider their range of BBQs shaped into racing cards and animals! www.perryhillorchards.co.uk

Trading Boundaries in Sheffield Green have a range of Indian Fire Pits which are great for BBQ’s and cooking a range of food. www.tradingboundaries.com

Start the BBQ season early and enjoy this lovely warm weather while you can!
