PLACES WE LOVE
US AND THE FARM
Joy and I had both worked and lived on a free range egg producing unit and open farm in Derby for several years. But our dream was to own our own farm and live the good life close to nature, rearing our own food in a way that was kind to the environment and the animals. The opportunity to purchase and develop about 30 acres of good agricultural land came about in 2006, we did not hesitate and within twelve months , Joy, myself and the boys (Jack & Issac) moved 250 miles from Derby to North Devon. We moved into our caravan which was to be our home for the next 3 years (no fun in winter) Since gaining planning permission for a 12,000 bird unit we have been busy setting up the egg unit, adding a couple of pigs, building our house and installing the infrastructure. So now in 2012 I can say that we live and work on our own farm in Devon.
The core business is producing free range eggs which are sold in Morrison’s and locally to shops, B & Bs’, restaurants and to the general public.
ABOUT THE ANIMALS
Our hens are all free-range and have 26 acres to roam in, they are let out first thing in the morning and put themselves to bed at dusk . We have just planted about 1,200 trees around the hen house, they love the cover this gives them. Our hens are kept to the highest welfare standards in Europe. We are proud to produce eggs for morrison’s natures nest range. Follow the link for more info
We have a strong belief that every animal should be free-range and allowed to do what nature intended as they are here at Orchard Hen Farm
We currently have 13,200 birds laying over 1000 dozen eggs a day.
