Greetings from Mantel Farm (smallholding) East Sussex UK


Hello everybody. We look forward to chatting with you and being part of the community. Mantel Farm is a family run smallholding shop and animal boarding service in the heart of the East Sussex Countryside, selling Poultry, Beekeeping Equipment, Wildfowl, Pigs and Small Pets, Animal Housing, Runs, Animal Supplies, Feed and Equipment.

Our aim is to support our family in as self sufficient and sustainable way as possible, we run a small scale family business, only selling products we have used ourselves and animals we have experience in keeping. We now have many breeds of poultry, along with beehives and small families of ducks, rabbits, pigs, geese and goats. We specialise in Poultry; selling everything you need to keep chickens yourselves.

We welcome you to come and have a look at the animals, browse our shop or ask our advice. We are happy to talk to you and encourage you to try this special way of life, either by enjoying the pleasures of keeping livestock, growing your own food or by simply buying local produce. We hope we can show you that you don't need a farm to keep animals, any reasonable sized garden can be home to a few hens for really fresh eggs, a hive of bees for honey and only a small pig paddock is needed for your own tasty pork.

Mantel Farm is on the outskirts of the historic town of Battle in the hamlet of Henley Down, between the villages of Catsfield and Crowhurst. It has been a poultry farm since the 1940's, originally producing poultry and eggs to the commercial market. When we purchased the farm it had ceased trading for a number of years, but it soon became our dream to not let this agricultural premises lay idle but to return it to its intended use, although on a smaller scale.

Hi :welcome from Yorkshire UK

Glad you could join the flock! Sounds like you have a great set up there, right up my street. I'm afraid though it's a little far me to just pop down but would certainly keep you in mind if I'm ever that way out. Here is a UK thread you might like to say Hi on ~

Wishing you the very best of luck in the future and enjoy BYC :frow
