As he cut a ribbon to open the shop Cllr Garry Wall, Leader of Mid Sussex District Council said: This is one cut Im very happy to make this week! Its terrific to see a long-standing family business like Rushfields continuing to innovate and invest in new ideas. Its important to support our local farmers and producers and I wish the farm shop every success.
Local resident Paula Seager, who runs the Sussex Food & Drink Awards said: Despite the current economic climate, there is increasing demand for locally-sourced produce and we are fortunate to have a wealth of wonderful food and drink here in Sussex. Rushfields Farm Shop offers an excellent range at good value and promises to be a great new outlet for local people.
Shop manager Rachel Fletcher said: The shop offers more than most farm shops because you can buy everything you need to eat or drink there, including staples such as bread, milk, butter and vegetables and all at reasonable prices so local food lovers have welcomed it with open arms.
