Our Eggs

Our eggs, like the hens which produce them, are well cared for. We want to share them with you when they are at their best. Our packaging includes a colourful sleeve which not only gives you all the information about their size, quality, freshness and where they came from, but also gives the eggs a little extra protection.

Sizing things up

Egg Grader

Little things make a big difference to a small team. Our lives changed when the egg grader arrived! We collect, sort, size and package thousands of eggs every year, according to strictly regulated procedures and to the highest standards.

Organic free range eggs

Hen

We firmly believe that the happiest of hens produce the most delicious eggs. Our eggs are produced to Soil Association standards. Our hens live in flocks of 100 birds - close to the natural flock size of their ancestors. They have spacious shelters and during the day they have free access to meadowland and woodland - their natural habitat.


Who are our happy hens?

We have a number of varieties, each chosen for their smart brown eggs as well as their temperament. At present we have Black Rocks and Isa Browns.


Where do they roam?

Our hens have the right to roam our organic meadows and woodland. The meadowland is planted with a variety of grasses and deep-rooting herbs. This mixture ensures that they can find a perfectly balanced diet. It also ensures that they stay healthy.


What do they eat ?

Our hens find some of their diet naturally on their travels. We supplement this with a home grown feeding programme: the farm now has it’s own hammer-mill which allows us to mill our home-grown peas and wheat to make wholemeal feed for our livestock. Our hens, especially the chicks, enjoy these millings. We think that this home-grown feed makes our organic eggs taste even better.
