Welcome to Tuppenny Barn…
Help for the Community
As a charity, we at Tuppenny Barn are keen to help the community in this time of great need. We have stepped up our normal working model to be able to provide as much fresh produce to those locally. The shop is now open on Thursdays from 9 – 4pm. We are practising strict social distancing, internally and externally, to keep both customers and staff safe.
We have been approached to help those families in the community that are finding it hard to provide food for their families. In response we have set up a Hardship Food Fund , specifically to meet this need. We are really grateful to the Sussex Community Foundation and Waitrose Chichester for being our first donors to this scheme. As the need outstrips what we currently have in funds, we are now asking for donations publicly to support this scheme. If you feel you can donate to this Hardship Food Fund, please click below:
Our vision is to create a better future for our children through inspiring communities to learn about sustainable and organic food.
Tuppenny Barn is a UK registered charity. We cultivate and harvest organic produce, using this to create learning experiences for all ages and to promote the benefits of growing, cooking and eating healthy food.
From hosting school trips and after-school clubs, to workshops and holiday activities, we teach children where fruit and vegetables come from, the benefits of eating nutritional food and give them the skills to grow and prepare their own meals.
We also provide educational experiences and activities for the wider community, to help people develop their growing and cooking abilities, alongside countryside skills like foraging, wreath making and willow weaving.
Our Education Centre has been designed with sustainable principles at its heart and provides a beautiful space for meetings, community and music events, art exhibitions and special occasions like weddings.
Our shop, open every Thursday, sells delicious, fresh organic bread, cakes and bakes, eggs, preserves and the fresh organic fruit, vegetables and cut flowers we grow here.
