The Egg Shed at Stokes Farm in Wokingham is a fantastic concept which gives you the opportunity to go and select your free range eggs at the farm in a Covid secure way.
We visited The Egg Shed and really enjoyed the experience, in my eyes it’s one of Berkshire hidden gems! We also went for a walk at Piglittle Field and Keephatch Park Nature Reserve which are just down the road from the farm after visiting the shop.
How does The Egg Shed work?
The Egg Shed has a selection of free range eggs including hens, duck and quail. You can also buy local honey from self service shop. You can buy eggs by the 1/2 dozen, dozen or tray.
See the below pictures for the egg prices (prices in April 2021).
There is a honesty system in place where you put your coins into the till, notes into the letterbox and you write down your purchase in the book.
There was hand gel avaliable and a ‘one person in The Egg Shed’ policy.
I found it was a great place to visit with children as you select your eggs from the egg display and place them in the box or tray which you select during your visit.
When is The Egg Shed open?
The Egg Shed is open on Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.
What else is at The Egg Shed?
When we visited The Egg Shed there was an animal shelter near the car park which was home to a pig and goat. It was lovely to see these two animals and there were also some geese walking around too.
Stokes Farm also deliver eggs to the following postcodes: RG12, RG40, RG41, RG42 & RG45.
