Where are your feasts and workshops held?
Most of our feasts and workshops are held at the Field Food barn. It’s near Southease, approximately 4 miles from Lewes. It’s easily accessible by car with lots of parking at the venue, and Southease train station is a short walk away.
The barn is part of a farm that is championing regenerative farming with a herbal tea garden, edible agroforest, bee hives, farmers, and florists also on site. It’s a private farm and out of respect to the owners we don’t advertise the full address online. We will send out full address details to people who have booked one week before the event.
From time to time you’ll find us popping up at other venues across Sussex.
What will I be eating?
We create our menus around what is abundant locally at that time of year. In the summer it will be big vibrant salads and fresh dishes; think rainbows of tomatoes, sun-ripened strawberries, freshly podded peas, and fragrant peaches. In the autumn and winter, you can expect heartier and more warming dishes with root vegetables, deep-orange squashes and pumpkins, apples and pears.
We’re inspired by chefs like Yotam Ottolenghi, Anna Jones and Diana Henry so you can expect vibrant flavours and feel-good food.
Due to the nature of our feasts, and working with local and seasonal produce, our menus are subject to change and we therefore cannot provide menus ahead of time. We give a taster of what’s on offer on each feast page.
Can you cater for allergies and dietary requirements?
We will do our best to accommodate for dietary requirements, however, due to the size of our events, we may be unable to accommodate for vegan or gluten-free alternatives. Please email us before booking if you would like more information.
If you have an allergy then unfortunately our events may not be suitable for you as we use different venues and kitchens and can’t guarantee that our food won’t come into contact with nuts and other ingredients. Please email us if you would like more information.
What if I need to cancel?
Please book your place with intention as we can’t provide refunds or exchanges for cancellations.
We are a small business and every booking makes a big difference to us. If you have to cancel we ask that you give us as much notice as possible and we may be able to help re-advertise your ticket. You may pass your ticket on to a friend if you are unable to make it.
What happens if an event is cancelled?
In the event of a cancellation or postponement, ticketholders will be offered the option of a refund or to transfer their booking to a new date.
How accessible is the barn?
Unfortunately, the barn is currently not accessible for people in wheelchairs. Due to the nature of a working farm, there are uneven surfaces, gravel paths, and steps around the property. This is something we are currently working on and we hope to be able to offer a more accessible venue soon.
Can I take films and photographs during my visit?
Field Food barn is part of a private farm, and out of respect for the owners, no film or photography is permitted within the grounds. Film and photography is welcomed with the barn itself.
