Pasture raised

Our hens love to explore and find new things to eat; they're fascinating to watch as they bustle around, finding such a balanced and varied diet. The hens often follow in the fields behind the cows and sheep, scratching around the dung, eating larvae and other bugs which would harm the sheep or cows. 

The need for additional feed is greatly reduced in this system; the majority of food is in the field.

Mobile system

Hens are very inquisitive by nature and are far more intelligent than most of us realise. They need new things to do and new places to explore regularly to keep their active minds busy. 

We move our hens three times a week onto fresh pasture.  They sleep in converted livestock trailers and caravans by night and range the fields by day. Moving house for them is as simple as hitching up and driving!

This also means we can spread the fertility of our hen's dung throughout the farm and minimise any disease build up.

Laying at their own pace

We keep our hens until they are 3-4 years old and many of them have already been re-homed to Redwoods when they were deemed at the end of their useful life from more intensive farms.

Our older hens are allowed time off through the winter when they can moult and have some rest from egg laying.  This is the time when our new birds start laying so we can maintain a steady supply of eggs.


The tasty eggs our laying hens produce have deep orange yolks which are the result of their varied diet and unlimited access to grass.

We currently deliver regular weekly orders to Uplowman, Sampford Peverell, Halberton and the Blundells road and Post Hill area of Tiverton.  We operate a regular order system for our eggs, although from time to time we have spare eggs available to sell with our other produce.

We also supply Ruxstons Farm Shop who deliver nationwide.
