Cut Flower Farm & Studio
Pitfield Barn is a cut flower farm just outside the village of Hurstpierpoint, approx. 8m from Brighton and is run by old friends, Emma and Peter. They sow, grow and harvest an abundance of fresh, seasonal British-grown flowers which are handpicked to order and grow their flowers sustainably without the use of chemicals. Grown not flown is their ethos, they are passionate about promoting British flowers, encouraging more people to appreciate the very best that the British seasons can bring, while buying locally and reducing flower air miles.
Their wide choice of seasonal flowers include narcissi, tulips, wallflowers, foxgloves, sweet william, anemones and ranunculus in the spring, followed by delphiniums, echinacea, rudbeckia, cornflowers, scabious, antirrhinums and many more in the summer. These are supplemented by large swathes of dahlia in late summer and autumn, ending with wonderful chrysanthemums and a selection of dried flowers and foliage ideal for wreath-making later in the year. They also cultivate a selection of elegant grasses and many flowering herbs to add into their cutting mix to ensure that their arrangements provide a scintillating assault on the senses.
They feel a huge responsibility in treating the land they work on and showing the wildlife they share their fields with the respect it deserves to ensure they can provide quality, beautiful seasonal blooms. They have lots of plans for the barn and other 9 acres in the future so watch this space!
