us, in a nutshell

 

We're the happy egg co. – the free-range egg people who do things a little differently. For us, it's all about one simple belief: happy hens lay tasty eggs, and that's why we're always going the extra mile for our girls, in every way we can.

It starts with us giving them acres of land to roam about in. And at all of our huge ranges, you'll find trees planted on at least 20% of the land (it's a rule of ours), which helps satisfy the girls' natural appetite for foraging and exploring.

When they need a break from all that roaming, the girls can gather around one of our specially designed activity kits. Decked out with dust baths and perches, they're dotted all over our ranges – perfect for practising a spot of flying, or just shaking a tail feather or two.

Why dust baths? Well, taking a dip in these lovely big sandboxes is exactly how happy hens like to clean and preen themselves, in a way that comes naturally and leaves them looking gorgeous.

Medal

But we don’t stop there - this is free range farming with a difference. We’re proud to have been awarded the Good Housekeeping ‘best ethical brand’ award, as voted for by their readers.

Book

We work with a team of scientific researchers from the University of Bristol to find out exactly how to keep our girls as happy as possible. It’s led to some pretty outside-the-egg-box ideas, including writing and reading a romantic novel for them (because they love the sound of a human voice), and making our very own calendar full of hunky cockerels to help them feel relaxed.

the result of all this hard work...

is a very contented bunch of girls, who lay happy, healthy, free-range eggs with rich, golden yolks — that taste just as good as they look.
