Which comes first…?
The chicken or the egg?
When it comes to the well known saying, ‘which came first the chicken or the egg?’, we are proud to tell you that at Penbugle Organic Farm, both come first! The egg might be small yet it’s perfectly formed, and it packs a punch in terms of protein and goodness, remaining an affordable and versatile ‘fast food’ product.
We have four flocks of hens, kept in mobile free-range sheds, and with access to hectares of lush pasture to do all the things chickens like doing: having dust baths, scratching, pecking, gossiping … and of course, laying beautiful organic eggs. Unusually, we rear all our own chickens, which is much more labour intensive, but which we believe is ultimately much less stressful for the chicken. Once again, organic accreditation ensures the best quality, and the best welfare standards. You look at our bright-eyed girls with their firm, red combs (the funny bit on top of their heads), proving just how ‘full of beans’ they are.
We supply health food shops around Cornwall, local restaurants, farm shops, delis and one of the ‘high end’ supermarkets. We sell at our local Trerulefoot Local Produce Market, and you can buy a little piece of Penbugle from our egg table at our farm gate! We deliver to the West of Cornwall every Wednesday and the Liskeard area on Thursdays.
Alternatively you can collect from the farm or Trerulefoot Market. You can contact either by email : firstname.lastname@example.org or 01579 326055
