What's Inside The Blue Egg?

Debs and Nicholas ReedGreat Gifts, Perfect Produce...
The Blue Egg - a place to immerse yourself in a world of beautiful and unique gifts, delicious food and fabulous surroundings.

The Blue Egg offers something different, named after the distinctive pale blue eggs of the resident Cream Legbar Chickens. The eggs stand out from the crowd and The Blue Egg certainly does too!

Situated just outside Great Bardfield, you can buy specialist groceries and a wide variety of gifts all under one roof. Our products are of great quality and taste, and offer great value for money. As a family run business, Debs and Nicholas Reed believe in supporting local producers and fair trade operations whenever possible.

A Post Office...
Our Post Office is open all day Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings providing you with all essential services.

Cafe KneadThe Blue Egg are pleased to announce the arrival of two five year old Kune Kune pigs. They are brother and sister and answer to the names Peaches and Pumba. Pumba has tusks and looks just like Pumba out of The Lion King! They are both very friendly and enjoy lots of attention. We hope they will be a wonderful asset to The Blue Egg and offer some excitement to our younger visitors! Please note, Peaches & Pumba are staying somewhere warm for the winter but will be back in March.

Plus, between March and December, keen gardeners can choose from a fabulous selection of locally-grown bedding plants and shrubs.
