FRESH PASTURED EGGS
The eggs are collected by hand every morning from the roll away nesting boxes in each trailer. These are designed so that the eggs roll away from the laying area down onto a central conveyor belt, keeping the eggs clean. It is not necessary for our eggs to be washed. Washing eggs removes a natural bloom on the surface of the egg therefore increasing the potential for bacteria to get into the egg decreasing the freshness and nutritional value of that egg.
The eggs are then taken to our packing shed where they are candled (to remove cracked or imperfections), graded, hand packed and stored in the cool room ready for delivery to our local suppliers. This whole process is complete within the morning ensuring that the eggs maintain maximum freshness.
