Matt Crow joins Sky Park Farm as Executive Chef


Sky Park Farm is delighted to announce that Matt Crow has joined the team as Executive Chef.

With a vision to deliver quality, local, modern food in a relaxed environment, Matt is a very welcome addition to the Sky Park Farm team. Matt will be spearheading all aspects of catering provision at the café and take away counters, as well as the produce available in the farm shop and deli counter.

Matt joins after seven years with an award winning high end catering company based in Surrey where he was Executive Chef. “I am very excited to start this new venture with Sky Park Farm, where we will have something for everyone throughout the day. I have always strived to improve the food I create, staying in front of modern food trends and being as innovative as possible with my approach. Whether dining in The Grazing Rooms, our modern café, visiting the deli counter in the farm shop or stopping for tea and cake. I hope to make our food offer a quality experience so visitors can’t wait to come back for more!”

Matt lives in Petersfield and is passionate about the local area and enhancing the food opportunities within it.  He is looking to use many quality local producers to supply ingredients for his dishes and to deliver his vision to all visitors.

Pierce & Victoria Noonan, owners of Sky Park Farm, said:

“We couldn’t be happier to have Matt join our team bringing his exemplary skills and breadth of experience to Sky Park Farm.  We want to put Harting and Sky Park Farm firmly on the food map for both shopping and eating. Matt’s vision for the food and farm shop offering is a perfect combination.  We are busy preparing to open our doors to the public in May 2021. As our Executive Chef, Matt will bring our vision to life establishing Sky Park Farm as a go to destination”
