Description

Why is this product amazing?

  • Pullet eggs are the first eggs laid by hens at about 18 weeks of age, lasting about 4 weeks before the size gets bigger
  • They have a large yolk to white ratio, they hold together like little mountains in the pan so are incredible for poaching and frying
  • Kept in small sheds of maximum 600 birds with acres of pasture and woods to play in, plus lots of veg treats we sneak them when we have leftovers
  • We have a mix of Lohman Brown, a caramel coloured inquisitive hen, Brown feathered Bovans Brown, and light coloured Amber Link hens - all perfectly suited to outdoor life in an organic environment and excellent egg layers

Purton House Organics says

Many customers rave about our eggs, and tell us they’re ‘proper’ eggs, with a proper yellow yolk, and rich taste. This is because they are free to pick and peck at what they fancy, munching on natural proteins and insects hiding in the ground; many caged eggs have their yolks dyed by feed supplements to turn them yellow instead

Meet Purton House Organics

Purton, Wiltshire

Mother and daughter-­run Purton House Organics supplies much of our fruit and vegetables, as well as organic beef, pork and eggs. Set over 70 hectares of Wiltshire countryside, the farm is proud to have held organic status since 1997. Farmer Rowie Meers is dedicated to the organic way of life and obsessed with healthy eating, especially non­processed and raw foods. She is a passionate advocate of ethical farming, sustainability and respect for nature – everything they do at Purton House puts the environment and the animals first. The real bosses here are the chickens, who ride the tractors and pretty much rule the roost. While the hens hitch-­hike, Rowie and her sheepdog Loopy take walks around the farm to check on the vegetables – including the nine poly-tunnels in which they grow heat-­loving aubergines, melons and oriental greens. Staffed by daughters, nephews, nieces and friends, Purton House truly is a family venture – and workers who aren’t related are treated just like they are! Lunch is served to all workers and anyone idly wandering into the kitchen would find it impossible to tell who was family and who wasn’t. If they hung about long enough they might even find themselves tucking into a bowl of Rowie’s signature paella. >*‘What we love most about Farmdrop is that it is run by passionate and like ­minded people who want to see everyone have the chance to buy directly from farms like ours.’* **Rowie Meers, Farmer** ● Organic status since 1997 ● Family run, with the help of Wwoofers (‘willing workers on organic farms’) in the summer ● Purton House is also a wedding venue ● Soil Association Gold Award and Wiltshire Wildlife Trust Corporate Green Award Winners, 2013 ­
