100 years of farming at Spring Barn Farm
In 2002, Tom Carr and Mike and Louise Possegger (née Carr) opened the Farm Park at Spring Barn Farm.
The Carr family have been farming at Spring Barn since 1917, and the latest developments are just some of the diversifications that have happened during the past century. For example, Spring Barn was one of the first dairy farms in the area to start their own milk round, back in the 1950s! (We’ll be adding more photos and information to this page to show you how the farm has changed over the years, so watch this space..)
Now a heady mix of visitor attraction, farm shop, restaurant and campsite – and of course, working sheep farm – Spring Barn remains true to its farming roots: working hard, year round, to provide products we hope our customers will love. And whether the ‘product’ is a topside joint, a home-cooked meal, or a day out in the Sussex countryside, the principle remains the same.
We have a strong community and environmental ethos too.. read more.
The farm is constantly evolving and improving, and will no doubt see plenty more changes in the generations to come. We do hope your family enjoy the history, hospitality and fun that make Spring Barn (we think) a very special bit of Sussex.
