from Orchard Organic Farm
Our aim is to produce the best quality eggs from the happiest and healthiest hens.
To ensure this is possible we implement the following standards:
– Maximum of 500 hens in a flock. The majority of alternative organic eggs come from 2000+ bird flocks and free range eggs from 6000+ bird flocks with two or more flocks in a house.
– 100% organic corn based feed rations. The feed does not contain any additives or artificial colouring agents, so the colour of the egg yolks is natural and can vary at times.
– Flocks moved onto fresh pasture range regularly.
– Locally reared and traditional breed pullets
We grade and pack all our eggs into cartons ready to sell in our own Grading Shed. Our eggs are collected and graded by hand which, we hope, helps to ensure the best care and attention to quality.
Our eggs are generally packed in Mixed Medium weight boxes. This means that the eggs in the boxes may be of varying sizes but the overall box weight will comfortably exceed that of six medium eggs.
