Sible Hedingham Business Showcase

Sible Hedingham enjoys a vibrant and diverse local economy.  It is home to an impressive range of enterprise, from hi-tech to home-grown, traditional to leading-edge.  This section of our website aims to showcase the businesses that thrive here - some well-known old friends on the high street, others centres of national excellence, all driving forward their commercial aims from our beautiful rural base.

It is imperative that the economic significance of our local businesses is recognised, not only within the parish, but beyond, where regional, county and district planning decisions take place.  Sible Hedingham is not merely a 'Service Village', but a community in which many wealth-producing individuals choose to work and live.  The quality of life in Sible Hedingham, from beautiful, accessible countryside and a warm and welcoming community, to the provision of everyday needs from local shops and public transport to broadband connectivity, is essential to giving people a reason to choose to live and work here.  The following are just some of the services which contribute to our community.  We hope it will prove useful in putting you in touch with the local service you need, but also in demonstrating the diversity and vitality of businesses on which the future of Sible Hedingham depends.


Inclusion in these pages does not indicate any endorsement of the services offered, but if you run a business in Sible Hedingham and would like your details to be included in this list, please contact the Parish Office

 Tile Kiln Barn  Rare Breed Meat  

Tile Kiln Barn logo

Tile Kiln Barn is a farm based in Sible Hedingham that rears animals producing Rare Breed Meat with a very high welfare standard.  Our animals live outside as much as possible allowing them to behave naturally.  We grow their food on the farm, mixing and milling on site, and the animals only ever travel a few miles on road journeys.  They are raised how we feel they should be raised and not the cheapest way.  Currently we are producing Pork and Turkeys which we supply to a number of high quality Butchers, catering establishments and to the general public.  We also do Hog Roasts, make Sausages and supply all Pork products.  We will be showing our animals at various County shows throughout the year, please see our website for details of all activities.


Our pigs currently include Gloucestershire Old Spots (the majority) Large Blacks (in the Rare Breed Survival Trusts most endangered Pig group) Saddlebacks, Oxford Sandy and Blacks, Pertrain (from Belgium) and Kune Kune (from New Zealand).
