Update 5th Nov - Lockdown 2.0


We are open as usual during the lockdown, like we were before. We have plenty of fruit and veg, meat, fish and grocery (including flour, eggs and pasta - the usual suspects!)

We are still operating with our Covid measures in place. We now have a station just inside the entrance door for you to clean the trolley and basket handles if you wish. There is also hand sanitizer at the entrance and just outside the exit of the shop. The team are all wearing face masks (and have been for a while) and we will continue to monitor the number of people in the shop.

During very busy times (which is not too often) we will hold people outside the shop until it is safe to allow more of you in.

Happy shopping!

About Us

Calcott Hall is a family run business and our aim is to provide a pleasant and friendly shopping experience, very different from large supermarkets. We grow a range of vegetables and fruit throughout the year and source locally whenever possible.

McTurks have been farming at Calcott Hall for over 40 years. Our farm is 120 acres (equivalent to about 70 football pitches) and was formerly a dairy farm. From humble beginnings selling potatoes and sweetcorn from boxes in 1974, much has happened at Calcott Hall and we have grown considerably. We renovated an old Essex barn in 1983, and have gradually used more and more of it as our shop needs have grown. For more about the farm look at our Farm and History pages.
