THE EGGS

We pride ourselves on only delivering eggs laid the same day so that you receive the freshest, best quality eggs with the greatest depth of flavour. Maximum freshness, maximum taste, maximum quality.

THE HENS

It’s simple; happy hens lay the best eggs so we put lots of effort into keeping our hens happy. We make sure they have all the feed and water they want, that they are tucked up nice and warm and that they have lots to keep them entertained.

ALL THE FEED & WATER

We plant a variety of grasses and clovers out on the range that nurture worms in the soil, attract a variety of insects and provide lots of different tasty treats for our hens. Not only does it keep the hens satisfied but we believe it adds depth of the flavour to their eggs.

TUCKED UP NICE & WARM

Hens, like people, love somewhere warm and dry so we make sure their hen house is the perfect place for them to retreat to. They have warm, dry, cosy nests to lay their eggs and lots of perches to roost on and free access to the outdoors to explore during the day.

ENTERTAINMENT

We have made sure that our hens have lots of interesting natural habitat to roam in. However on days they don’t like the weather there is lots for them to do indoors, they can listen to the radio, play with the footballs, bathe in dust bathes or play in the shavings and straw in their hen house.

FRESH EGGS STAY TOGETHER

Break a really fresh good quality egg into a frying pan or drop into water to poach and it will stay as a tight ball making a neat round poached or fried egg.

THE FIVE STEP TEST

1. Look at the shell. It should be bright and have a sheen to it.

2. Crack the shell. It should be a sharp snap rather than a dull thud.

3. Look at the air pocket. Inside the round end of the egg (the non pointy end) there is an air bubble, when the egg is laid it is less than 4mm in depth, as the egg ages the air bubble grows in size.

4. Look at the height and circumference of the white. There are two parts to the egg white the thick albumen (closest to the yolk) and the thin albumen (around the outside of the thick albumen) this is sometimes mistaken for water. The yolk should sit nice and high in the middle of the thick albumen, the thin albumen should be nice and tight around the thick and not spread out.

5. Taste the egg. The yolk should have a rich creamy consistency, with a luxurious sheen and a broad depth of flavour.
