Our Egg-cellent Village
Living in the country, hens are very much a part of our village landscape. Our Egg-cellent village project ultimately aims to provide the majority of our eggs locally, for local consumption. To begin with we are creating an ‘Egg Map.’ This map shows villagers who keep hens and who are willing to sell their surplus eggs. These eggs are sold on a garden gate basis, meaning no stamping/marking or weighing of the eggs is required; just fresh eggs available right on your doorstep.
In time, we also hope that we will be able to encourage more people to keep hens. Part of the ‘Egg Map’ scheme will be to offer support to people in setting up and keeping hens. If you want to be included on the Egg Map, or are interested in keeping hens, please contact us.
