Franklin’s free range

We are delighted to be working with Franklin’s of Thorncote for free-range eggs over the winter months (while the Oakland’s ladies take a well deserved break and snuggle deep down in their straw for a few months). A free-range farm on the border of Bedfordshire and Herts, the Franklin family raise all sorts of poultry across their farm for eggs and meat and chickens, ducks and turkeys can be seen happily scratching around when we pop in to collect.

Our collection round takes us a few hundred yards from Thorncote so it’s ideal to pop in for our eggs over the coming months. The family pride themselves in their care for the birds and we think you can taste the happy – do let us know what you think!

Apart from providing us with eggs, Franklins are busy gearing up for Christmas at the moment, offering free-range bronze and white turkeys straight from the farm. Check out our Christmas shop for more details
