Tuppenny Barn is a non-profit organic smallholding in Southbourne, West Sussex, next to the vibrant coastal town of Emsworth.  We grow and sell organic fruit and vegetables, love the environment, and aim to be a beacon of sustainable living for the community we serve.

At our eco-built circular barn - our education and community centre - we provide learning experiences for children, where we promote healthy diets and sustainable lifestyles.  Learning experiences include school trips, an after-school club 'Tuppenny Explorers', activity workshops for pre-schoolers 'Tuppenny Tots', and kids holiday activities.  We strive to educate children about where food comes from, the nutritional benefits of eating fresh fruit and vegetables and the knowledge and skills to both 'grow your own' and prepare healthy fresh meals.

As well as advocating spending more time outdoors learning countryside skills, we teach children to treat the environment with care and respect the natural world.

We have a weekly veg bag scheme, and sell our organic fruit and vegetables every Thursday and Friday at our shop.

Our education and community centre is also a venue for regular events, courses and workshops for adults.  We host yoga classes, cookery workshops, music concerts, art exhibitionsWedding Receptions and a whole lot more!

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
