Happy Hens

Our organic free-range eggs

We have our own organic free range laying hens here at Sheepdrove. Our hens have the freedom to roam from dawn until dusk in herb enriched pastures with hedging for cover and shelter.

Hens that graze produce eggs that are naturally high in omega 3, vitamins A and E and have lower levels of saturated fat, cholesterol and omega 6. At night the birds are shut away in large straw filled barns with ample room to roost.

Our hens come from another organic farm when they reach the end of their first year there. At Sheepdrove they have a home for life where they live far longer than is usual.  It's good to be a Sheepdrove hen!
