Cafe, Food & Drink, Tibbs Farm, 1066 Country, Farm Shop


A traditional family farm with plenty of things to do. The fantastic Café and Farm Shop overlooks the hop gardens with views through the picturesque Tillingham Valley towards Rye. Now that we've reached the winter season, pop on your walking boots and head for the trails that start and finish at the café, through the fruit orchards and the ancient woodlands.

Tibbs Farm offers extensive pick-your-own fruits in summer, and later it's the place to go for pumpkins and Christmas trees. They also have pigs in their woodland den, native Romney sheep and run a small flock of exceptionally free-range hens. Tibbs has also been hop growing since 1690!


Tibbs Café

The café is supplied with fresh, seasonal produce grown on the farm where possible, with an expanding range of vegetables to include asparagus. We make jams, jellies and chutneys for the café, as well as separately for sale. We also have our own real fruit made-on-demand ice cream.

Pick-Your-Own Fruit

From the beginning of June through to mid-August, the farm is brimming with pick-your-own fruits, including strawberries, raspberries, loganberries, tayberries, gooseberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, blackberries, plums, boysenberries and tummelberries.


Six years in the making, Tibbs Farm's maze is 1,500m of winding, forking paths to get lost in. The beech trees retain their leaves over winter so, weather dependent, the maze is open all year round!

Hop Picking Tours

In September 2022 Tibbs launch their hop picking tours. Learn about the journey of this labour intensive crop and all that goes into harvesting it for that perfect Sussex beer.


The farm has a number of signposted permissive farm trails straddling the Tillingham and Brede valleys with far-reaching views across Sussex and into Kent, crossing rivers and passing through ancient woodland. These routes are open during the winter only. Maps are available at the café.



The Cafe has wheelchair accessible with a fully compliant disabled WC. By the nature of being a farm, during the fruit season, whilst plenty of people manage perfectly well in wheelchairs and also with pushchairs we can't guarantee the terrain will be suitable for everyone. Much of the PYO fruit is situated on northern facing banks.


Well behaved dogs on leads throughout the year are welcome but during the fruit season they cannot go into the fruit fields.
