Hens Continue Winning Run!
3rd August 2018 Paul Andrews
Following the announcement of this year’s Great Taste results, The Traditional Free Range Egg Company is celebrating more stars for its multi award-winning hens.
Rambling Free hens eggs achieved a 2-star and Birds & Herds hens eggs took home a 1-star accolade. Both brands were created to shine a spotlight on the UK’s small traditional free range egg farmers, so these latest awards provide further evidence of the exceptional quality and taste that can be achieved using the flat deck system.
The Great Taste judges heaped praise upon Rambling Free, with comments including “they definitely love their birds!” and “what a good egg!” The panel agreed that “the eggs look gorgeous with a rich golden yolk”, describing the product as “a classic example of what an egg should be”. Birds & Herds, a brand of free range eggs produced within a traditional mob grazing system, also impressed the judges, who applauded their “vivid daffodil yellow yolk with a lovely rich and long-lasting flavour”, and ultimately concluded that “we'd be very happy to have one - or two - of these for breakfast!”
Dan Wood, managing director of The Traditional Free Range Egg Company, explains: “Our traditional girls have smashed it once again this year and as ever, we’re very proud to have the Great Taste stamp of approval for small independent farmers using the time-honoured flat deck method. Every egg from The Traditional Free Range Egg Company has a story behind it - from Rambling Free’s support for the UK’s small traditional free range egg farmers to Birds & Herds re-establishing the natural order of grazing animals and poultry working in harmony with the land - but the story is nothing without a delicious product to back it up. These Great Taste awards are a signpost to the exceptional quality of our products and we hope this will encourage more and more consumers to choose an egg that supports the family-run farms that we work with.”
