Free Range Eggs

Our delicious brown eggs are supplied by Hyde Farm Eggs in Kinver. They are from free range birds who enjoy very high standards of diet, welfare and lifestyle.

Free Range Bacon

The pork for our bacon is totally free range pork sourced from Blythburgh Free Range Pork Their pigs are born outside and spend their entire lives outdoors in the fresh air, with freedom to roam in large paddocks. By growing at a much slower, more natural rate, Blythburgh Free Range Pork acquires a traditional flavour and succulence that has been largely forgotten in today’s mass produced pork.
