Pasture Raised Freckled Brown Eggs (Mixed)
Our gorgeous hens roam the farm, forage amongst the wildflowers, and produce the most delicious Quattro coloured eggs. There are always a minimum of four colours guaranteed in each box. Colours range from the palest pastel blue, to the richest spotty chocolate. No box is ever the same! Eggs are super fresh, being delivered to your door within a few days of being laid. Perfect for poaching! Quattro Coloured eggs are known for their rich taste, and of course, the beautiful coloured shells which is like nothing you’ll find in a supermarket!
There’s big plans afoot for the farm – Matt is in the process of building a shed for 1,000 more hens (still tiny compared to the maximum flock size for free range egg laying hens of 16,000!) Our new shed itself can house 1,500 chickens but by stocking the shed with a smaller number of birds, it makes for happier birds. At the moment, the new shed is still just a shell but Matt assures us that it will be ready for the ladies arrival in October. The chickens are fed a totally organic diet, including organic corn, flax, and kelp and even the water is treated. Water in the Bath area is particularly hard so at the moment the farmers are hand treating it so that it gets to the ideal PH for the animals. There is a plan to get an automated water treatment in place.
Best to keep these eggs cool (around 10°C). If you refrigerate allow 30mins before you use them
Minimum 14 days
