About

Chalk Meadows is a small farm in Sidlesham near Chichester, West Sussex. Situated close to Pagham nature reserve and an ancient woodland, Chalk Meadows is enjoyed by an abundance of wildlife and the land is managed in a way that is sympathetic to nature.

Chalk Meadows fields are grazed annually by sheep with nutrients put back into the ground and the grass is left to grow each year, enjoyed by wildlife and then cut for hay to feed local animals.

We have planted a new apple orchard of 52 trees which are becoming established and we plan to produce apple cider vinegar once there is a good crop.

We have also planted a large asparagus bed which is in its second year and we look forward to tasting the first spears in 2024 and growing for the local community thereafter.

We grow a variety of plants from cuttings and seed and have a stock of laurel and griselinia hedging as well as selection of hydrangeas, agapanthus and lavender.
