Here at Sunnyside it was definitely the egg that came first. We’ve been selling our free range eggs from the door since we first set up here at Poplar Farm in 1991. Our hens were made a Rick Stein’s food heroes in 1995.
Our chickens roam freely on the hillside opposite the farm shop, foraging for their own food. They can do this because we don’t trim their beaks, as is the practice with battery hens. The eggs are usually sold within 24 hours of being laid, and sometimes even within the space of a couple of hours. You can’t get much fresher than that.
And remember ladies – It may be the cock that crows but it’s the hen that delivers the goods!.
