Jamie’s Farm, Lewes

Welcome to the farm

Our fourth rural site, Allington Farm, opened in 2019. Nestled at the foot of the South Downs National Park, it offers stunning, far-reaching views. The farm includes 210 acres of grass and woodland, creating a varied environment for both our animals and young people to enjoy.

This is the first of our farms to operate on a lease model and has allowed us to bring Jamie’s Farm to the South East. The site comprises of a traditional Sussex farmhouse with a homely and colourful interior, sitting next to our pond housing ducks and a local heron. Livestock includes our herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle, Lleyn and Suffolk ewes, chickens, Large White pigs and our naughty goats. We also enjoy the company of our two horses called Toffee and Squidge.
