The Sussex Peasant

Moving Image / Stills


A series of six short films, shot around Sussex for a pop-up farmers market called The Sussex Peasant, who source produce from a network of local farmers and producers in the week and sell at a range of sites around Brighton and other towns every weekend.

The stories explore the importance of nutrition, regenerative agriculture and biodiversity.  They talk about embracing ‘local and seasonal’, community, and how like-minded people are helping each other overcome the challenges of climate change.

The Sussex Peasant is a living example of a solution to a major contributing factor to the climate crises whilst improving the quality of peoples lives. Above all else this model connects the customer and producer so that people know where their food is from and builds a circular relationship based on trust and respect.

Real stories, about real people, living the future.
