Mill Meadows Farm

Our Back Garden has truly transformed our family. Starting with a few fields we have worked hard to run a successful rare breed farm called Mill Meadows Farm, our home and base. Located in West Sussex at the edge of the South Downs National Park the farm is a huge part of what makes our everyday lives so fulfilling. “Our Back Garden” is a brand we have created to stay connected with our community. We hope to be able to share our experiences and achievements not only through our products but also by allowing our community to have access to us through direct farming experiences and also online. After all, we all want to have our own gardens to invest in. Ours, like yours, takes hard work and a lot of heart. We look forward to sharing our journey with you. [instagram-feed]
