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.
Dredged or handpicked from the seabed at low tide the Oysters are then purified in tanks at the Fishery for at least 42 hours. Mick then hand grades them by eye and hand, making sure they are in top condition before being gently packed into wooden boxes ready to be sent to you. If you select to have an oyster knife, we will send you our wooden-handled oyster knife.
