Nantclyd Farm scoops a Soil Association food award!
Local organic poultry farmer Liz Findlay has scooped this prestigious award for her delicious organic eggs produced in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion.
Here's what the judges said:
"Great yolk cooked dark, incredible flavour, thicker texture, one of the creamiest, old fashioned 'eggy' flavour."
About Nantclyd Farm:
"We are delighted to have received such as prestigious, and widely recognised award for our eggs." Said Liz Findlay
The eggs at Nantclyd Farm are laid by free range organic hens who live in small groups in mobile sheds with year round access to pasture and hedgerows from dawn till dusk. They are fed a home mixed ration based on Welsh grown oats milled on the farm, and are part of the farm rotation which also includes fruit, vegetables, cereals and sheep. The chicks are reared from a day old on the farm, and the poultry is part of a 6-8 year rotation, working with other small organic local farms to maintain year round supply.
