About
About Us-01.png

Bush Barn Farm is an organic, family run farm located just outside the quiet village of Robertsbridge in East Sussex. 

After working together on a farm in Tanzania, we moved to Robertsbridge to settle down and build up our own farm business. We now grow elder trees on 25 acres from which we harvest the finest organic elderflowers and elderberries. The elderflowers and elderberries are sold fresh at harvest time and we use them to make our own delicious Bush Barn Farm cordials.

When looking at our elder tree orchard you will notice that we take a lot of pride in what we do and we ensure that our elderflowers and elderberries have the highest quality possible.

We established our orchard in 2019 from elder trees originating in Germany. They are of the varieties Haschberg, Haidegg 13 and Haidegg 17. These varieties grow elderflowers and elderberries renowned for their good flavours and high yields.

 

The whole farm is certified organic with the soil association. We are passionate about nature and wildlife and have allocated parts of the farm specifically for creating species rich grasslands and hedges that encourage wildlife diversity and provides food for birds and insects.
