Are you a foodie, a juicer, free from or more of a meat and two veg?
Do you prefer organic, local or economical?
Here’s a taste of what’s on offer at Eggs to Apples to suit you.
FRUIT & VEGETABLES
True to the tradition of farm shops, fresh fruit and vegetables take centre stage.
We pride ourselves on fresh affordable produce and very much local where possible and season permitting.
We get excited about the freshness of our just picked produce with around a dozen farms selling their produce through us at any one time.
We highlight products that are organic or pesticide free and offer an ordering service for requests for harder to find produce or organic boxes.
We have minimal packaging so you can touch, smell and choose exactly what you need.
If we can’t grow it in Britain then we offer the best of what is in season globally so you can eat your way around the world and back.
We are proud to have our own resident fishmonger, formally of ‘Prawn on the Lawn’ (we love a good name!) in London.
Chris is with us Wednesday to Saturday with pre orders welcome and fish is available all week at the fish deck in store.
Chris chooses the best locally caught (landing permitting) selection as well as sustainably sourced fish and shellfish from further afield.
All fish is prepared to your preferences whether whole, filleted, grill and oven ready. A quick call to us will ensure your chosen fish is prepped and put by ready for collection if you don’t have time to take a seat and watch your dinner being prepared.
Chris the Fish also runs free fish skills course twice monthly for those who want to brush up their prep skills or to learn the basics. Please see EVENTS for further details.
We have a wide selection of fresh beef, lamb, pork products and poultry from local farms where provenance and animal welfare is paramount, much of it organically reared or free range.
We also cater to pre orders for cuts which require preparation to your individual needs. When in season we offer game including venison, pigeon and guinea fowl.
Age is not important, unless you are a cheese.
Our cheeses range from the freshest goat’s curd to the maturest of tangy aged cheddars.
We are lucky enough to have three local Sussex cheese makers who share their cheeses with us as well as comprehensive selection of British, regional and of course the best of the continental cheeses to ensure you have the best dressed cheeseboard.
We offer free tastings of cheeses and will happily suggest lesser known cheeses to suit your palate.
Our charcuterie is not only predominantly British but one of the most pioneering English Charcuterers is mere miles away and delivers to us salamis and cured meats to challenge any of it’s continental friends. Oh, and the best scotch eggs around.
A great selection of olives and antipasti are the finale of our deli offering and will be sure to liven up any party!
A well stocked pantry can respond to the challenge of any recipe, from Ottelenghi to Ella, or Delia to Mrs Beeton!
Products have been selected for quality and value for many, with some less familiar brands to keep you interested.
We offer a range of wholefoods, grains and pulses, baking essentials and the best A to Z of herbs and spices for miles around.
Global cuisines are represented by an enticing selection of sauces, marinades and spices.
Organic and herbal teas sit side by side with our own house coffee blend and are complemented by delectable biscuits, cakes and chocolate, many of which are made by our local Mary Berrys.
Good habits start young and we have a tailored range of goodies for babies and children, including some familiar favourites and of course a few treats for good behaviour.
For those with a sweet tooth, we can tempt you with a local cake, traybake or tart, or some of the finest Italian amaretto and work with two chocolatiers for the finest of bars, truffles and treats.
No Farm Shop would be complete without the best local preserves, honeys, jams and chutneys, our range will tantilise your toast or cheer up your cheese sandwich no end.
Talking of toast we get a fresh bake every day from not one but two local bakeries, add to that toast eggs from some of the happiest free range hens around and that’s breakfast, lunch or dinner sorted!
Gluten Free and Free from
Whatever your free from need we aim to offer you alternatives to suit your requirements.
We are proud to work with an innovative Gluten Free kitchen who provide us weekly with fresh baked gluten free goods that will pass the whole families’ taste test.
We also carry a range of gluten free dried goods and cereals, as well as dairy free and vegan alternatives.
An ever-expanding area of the shop! In the cellar you will find some amazing craft beers from all corners of Kent and Sussex (and few from further afield). We also support a number of local artisan distillers including Blackdown and Anno.
There are local wines from Chapel Down and Hush Heath Vineyards as well as our very unique refillable wine systems. Buy a bottle, fill it, drink it, bring it back and refill. Simple.
Take a walk through our wild meadow flowers, planted as a border and now a feature in their own right, or breathe in the heady aromas emanating from our herb beds, designed for you to snip and take home whatever your recipe requires.
Take your coffee outside and enjoy the breathtaking view over the Weald, we are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty after all.
FLOWERS & PLANTS
To complement our fabulous food offering, we sell herb and vegetable plants for your green fingers to tend at home, however small your garden.
Fabulous fresh and fragrant cut flowers are available daily for you to indulge yourself or a friend, often grown at a local cutting garden.
