The Traditional Free Range Egg Company scooped five Gold awards for its entire Free Collection in this year’s Taste of the West Awards, spelling yet another clean sweep for the Somerset-based free range egg producer and supplier. Owners Dan and Briony Wood picked up Gold for their Waddling Free duck eggs, Rambling Free hens eggs, Naturally Free organic hens eggs, Foraging Free quail eggs and Dabbling Free goose eggs, with this latest haul of awards providing another feather in the Woods’ cap as they continue to work towards a sustainable future for independent family-run farms employing the traditional flat deck method.
Receiving praise from the first glance with their “beautifully clean egg shells”, the Free Collection won the judges over with both appearance and taste. Commenting on the Dabbling Free goose eggs, judges described them as having “huge yolks” and a “lovely mild flavour”, while the Waddling Free duck eggs were dubbed “egg-sactly as a good duck egg should be, with a wonderful appearance”, with further notes including “all uniform in shape”, “lovely yolk and white” and “delicious taste”.
Dan Wood, managing director of The Traditional Free Range Egg Company, explains;
“It’s fantastic to have our entire Free Collection awarded the highest rating in Taste of the West once again, up against so many other celebrated food and drink producers in the south west. It is a real testament to the consistent quality and exceptional taste that can be achieved using traditional farming methods and we hope this latest haul will provide a boost for all free range egg farmers using the traditional flat deck method, both in the UK and beyond.”
