Roger of Trecastle Eggs only sells free range large hen’s eggs which he carefully selects every morning at his poultry farm and then brings to our markets in Roath on Saturdays and Riverside on Sundays. A few weeks ago he was missed as he was snowed in and couldn’t get to Cardiff however now the weather is getting better this shouldn’t be a problem. Fingers crossed!
