Hen Welfare

The conditions on our farm are approved by Freedom Food to strict RSPCA welfare standards and we are regularly inspected.

What is Freedom Food?

Freedom food is the RSPCA’s farm assurance and food labelling scheme. It is the only UK farm assurance scheme to focus solely on improving the welfare of farm animals reared for food. It looks for:

  1. Freedom from hunger and thirst.
  2. Freedom from sickness and disease.
  3. Freedom from fear and distress.
  4. Freedom from pain and injury.
  5. Freedom to express normal behaviour.

What about salmonella?

Our hens are vaccinated against salmonella.
