We are Brian and Ros Jolly, a husband and wife team.
A Jolly simple story…
Jolly Good Eggs began after Brian, a transport manager for a large egg company, started selling a few eggs to friends and family 3½ years ago. The response was so strong that Ros was soon on board and eggs were suddenly taking over! The venture quickly became full-time for both of them and with a surname like Jolly, the name almost wrote itself.
From selling a few eggs here and there, we now supply free-range eggs and a range of other fantastic local products to individuals right through to large commercial customers. We regularly supply local cafes, pubs, farm shops, B&B’s, restaurants and many locally based cake makers. You can come and visit us at the local markets or we can come to you with our local delivery service.
We are passionate about great local food and so we have been thrilled to source some of our absolute favourite Shropshire products to add to our deliveries, including free-range hen and duck eggs, quail eggs, Shropshire Spice Company’s herbs & spices, potatoes, jams, marmalades, curds, pickles & chutneys, local honey, Snowdonia Cheeses, piggy pots and the famous Russell’s Pies. We now also sell freshly baked bread and cakes from Catherine’s Bakery who are based near Bridgnorth – another firm Shropshire favourite.
As well as the fantastic taste, this is also an environmentally-friendly way to shop with the low carbon footprint as we keep things as local as we can so our products have never travelled far and packaging is minimal. It is wonderful to see just how many of our customers bring back their egg boxes each week for re-use!
We are a little local business supporting other little local businesses!
Our service is a good old-fashioned one, we’re very personable and love a chat with all our lovely customers on our rounds and at the markets. We listen to our customers and their feedback has helped shape the offerings now available and potential future products.
The only modern difference is that our customers place orders via our facebook page or over the phone. Here again we’ve been overwhelmed by the fantastic response with lovely comments and reviews from our customers, and we always love to see photos of the clever bakes and double-yolker fry-ups!
So head over to our facebook page or one of the markets and get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
