The view from Norman Wood Farm in the beautiful Goyt Valley where, as part of our social enterprise training projects, we keep a flock of free-range hens.

Our Free-range eggs are sold under the Good News label to help cover our operating costs.

(1) You would be helping needy young people to gain valuable work experience.

(2) Commercially produced eggs (even free-range) can be weeks old by the time they reach your kitchen. There's nothing wrong with this - eggs have a long shelf life - but we believe "Fresh is Best" - that's why Good News eggs are only a matter of days old.

(3) Happier hens! During the day our hens are free to roam in and out of their barns at our Goyt Valley farm. They are fed on good, wholesome poultry feed and fresh water.
