Our famous Colchester Rock Oysters are truly free-range and live naturally on the seabed, with ample food and space to grow, rather than grown in nets or cages. It's like the difference between a free-range chicken and a battery hen.
The Rock Oyster is available all year round, the shells are long deep and flared, and the oyster is meaty, firm and creamy with a fresh sweet taste. Our Oysters mature in the plankton-rich waters of the Pyefleet Creek to take on a defined flavour full of zinc and other minerals.
We recommend that you keep the Oysters in the fridge with a damp tea towel or tissue on top. They are best eaten as soon as possible after delivery but should last up to three days if cared for properly.
