Somerset egg producer, Blackacre Farm, has got healthy snacks, guilt-free treats and sophisticated starters sewn up with its Foraging Free quails’ eggs, part of its multi-award winning Free Collection. Each dainty egg contains just 14 calories and is packed full of vitamins and minerals, offering an impressive list of health benefits ranging from strengthening the immune system to increasing brain activity.
With free-range eggs widely recognised as offering superior nutritional value, Blackacre’s commitment to love, care, freedom and fresh air means that a Foraging Free quail’s egg contains an exceptionally healthy hit beneath its distinctively speckled shell, helping to alleviate allergies, prevent kidney stones and even balance cholesterol.
Like all the birds at Blackacre Farm, the Foraging Free flock enjoy a truly free-range lifestyle, with owners Dan and Briony Wood choosing to go above and beyond the industry standard of ‘free to fly’. Providing huge aviaries for the quails to fly and forage in throughout the day, the birds benefit from those all-important sunlight hours, enhancing the colour and flavour of their eggs which earnt a Taste of the West Gold award in 2015.
Foraging Free quails’ eggs are sold in packs of six (RRP £1.75) or packs of 12 (RRP £2.50) and are available from Fortnum and Mason, Selfridges, Bayley and Sage, Chatsworth Estate and other good independent delis, farm shops, butchers and grocery stores in the UK.
