We deliver fresh free-range eggs to the Grindleford area every Thursday evening for £2.30 per box of six — other times by arrangement. Just drop an email to email@example.com and we will add you to the round.
We now have our second henhouse in production. So we should be more able to meet the demands for Charli's Chooks eggs over the coming months.
It has been a lot of hard work getting to this point — not least because of tortuous planning applications and one planning appeal. Then there was a henhouse to take to pieces, remove, repair and reassemble. Plus some cleaning and creosoting of the main henhouse.
At the moment we have a small second flock of white- and blue- egglayers. They are very young but should come into full lay in the next month. We'll expand this flock in the late summer to keep egg numbers up over winter.
I have just bottled our last honey from the 2019 season. It is a late season crop dominated by honey from nearby heather moorlands. It has the distinctive flavour, dark colour and slightly thixotropic texture that all come from ling heather. It should be in White's at Calver Crossroads today, when you buy your other essentials!
