Mother’s Day Lunch from Chef’s Farms

Fresh, local produce lies at the heart of Chef’s Farms, an online shop which brings together goods from a group of Sussex farms.

Recently Chef’s Farms added DIY meal kits to its repertoire, with a themed box coming up for Mother’s Day. Designed for three to four adults, the box includes all the ingredients for a hearty roast, including pork belly, leek and cauliflower cheese, sauteed Hispi cabbage and crispy roast potatoes, followed by an apple and forced rhubarb crumble dessert. £66, chefsfarms.co.uk
