We're delighted to bring you beautiful and fresh organic eggs from our very own Sandy Lane Farm. Each half dozen box will contain a mix of white and brown eggs from George's 'Red Rock' and 'White Leghorn' hens. All with room to roam and graze naturally on the farm's organic pasture.
Why do hens love organic standards?
Organic hens require 2.5x the space for housing vs FR with a greater ranging area and natural aerial protection (trees or tall plants), welfare standards are much more stringent. Their insulated, mobile polytunnel unit means they don't get too hot in Summer or too cold in Winter. Roll-away systems mean you get cleaner eggs and you don't disturb the hens when collecting, so less stress for the birds. Mobile means we can include the hens in veg rotation, they get a good deal of their diet from grazing fresh ground, and will scarify and fertilise future veg growing ground.
6 medium or large eggs per pack.
