From One Tin Hut to Another

During this time of year 50 years ago, Hare Farm became the temporary home and workplace for over 100 hop pickers, brought here in the farm's old American army lorry from Brighton and Shoreham. 

Tony spent his childhood summers here, along with nearly 20 others in his family. Back then, Tony slept on a straw bale in a tin hut. 

This coming weekend, 43 years after his final hop season here, Tony is returning to stay. This time he will still sleep in a tin hut, but a much more sophisticated one, the shepherd's hut! We wish Tony and his partner a fabulous weekend down memory lane.
