Our aim is to support our family in as self sufficient and sustainable way as possible, we run a small scale family business, only selling products we have used ourselves and animals we have experience in keeping.
We now have many breeds of poultry, along with beehives and small families
of ducks, rabbits, pigs, geese and goats.
We specialise in Poultry; selling everything you need to keep chickens yourselves.
We welcome you to come and have a look at the animals,
browse our shop or ask our advice.
We are happy to talk to you and encourage you to try this special way of life, either by enjoying the pleasures of keeping livestock, growing your own food or by simply buying local produce.
We hope we can show you that you dont need a farm to keep animals, any reasonable sized garden can be home to a few hens for really fresh eggs, a hive of bees for honey and only a small pig paddock is needed for your own tasty pork.
Mantel Farm is on the outskirts of the historic town of Battle in the hamlet of Henley Down, between the villages of Catsfield and Crowhurst. It has been a poultry farm since the 1940's, originally producing poultry and eggs to the commercial market. When we purchased the farm it had ceased trading for a number of years, but it soon became our dream to not let this agricultural premises lay idle but to return it to its intended use, although on a smaller scale.
