About Fenton Farm Eggs
Andrew Gabriel & Family
Our farm is in Holcombe Rogus on the Devon / Somerset border.
We farm 155 acres and are the 3rd generation of our family on the farm.
We grow cereals for grain and straw some of which is used for the hens. We have some beautiful permanent pasture in a steep sided valley, which has not been sprayed in living memory and is lightly grazed by cattle to encourage wild flowers.
Fenton Farm Eggs are laid by hens in traditional free range flocks where they have access throughout the day to green pasture where they roam freely and are fed specially formulated feed to enhance yolk colour.
Fenton Farm Eggs are laid by different breeds of hens including Fenton Blues which are bred from Cream Legbars and Araucanas and lay beautiful green/blue eggs, White Leghorns, a more flighty bird that originates from the Leghorn region of Italy and lays pure white eggs and a Rhode Island Red Cross which lay traditional brown eggs.
The excellent and natural conditions in which the hens are kept in results in exceptional quality eggs with strong shells, bright yolks and superior flavour.
