Somerset-based free range egg producer and supplier, The Traditional Free Range Egg Company, has received a Good Egg Award from Compassion in World Farming at the Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards 2016. Commended for their dedication to ensuring exceptional welfare standards for all of their birds, including their Rambling Free hens, Waddling Free ducks, Foraging Free quails, Dabbling Free geese and Naturally Free organic hens, owners Dan and Briony Wood remain committed to going above and beyond industry standards of free range and free to fly, guided by an ethos of love, care, freedom and fresh air.
Recognising food businesses that make it their policy to produce and source higher welfare eggs, meat and dairy produce, the Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards presented the Good Egg Award to The Traditional Free Range Egg Company in a year that has seen the producer play a leading role in ensuring a sustainable future for likeminded family-run farms across the UK. Undertaking both a rebrand and a high profile campaign to educate consumers on the difference between traditional flat deck free range egg farming and more industrialised methods of producing free range eggs, the company is determined to support smaller independent farms and help them thrive in a rapidly changing marketplace.
Dan Wood, managing director of The Traditional Free Range Egg Company, explains;
“Having our commitment to welfare recognised by Compassion in World Farming means a lot to us, as the health and happiness of our birds is second to none. We believe that the traditional flat deck system provides the perfect environment for our girls, helping us produce exceptional quality eggs, and our haul of awards in 2016 is testament to this. Our latest Good Egg Award will provide a real boost for us and we hope that it will help us shine a light on what we’re about, as we continue on our mission to save tradition.”
The Traditional Free Range Egg Company’s free range eggs are available exclusively from independent retailers, including delis, farm shops, butchers and grocery stores across the UK.
