Collect your own Eggs

We have excellent chickens at Kirkwood.  They lay all year round (although not quite as many in the winter) so we can offer guests the chance to collect their own eggs at any time of year.   These eggs are farm fresh (£4 per dozen) and taste so much better than those bought in the supermarket.

Our girls are free range and enjoy the outdoors all day with a cosy coop for night time.  They are lovely birds to visit, you can feed them too, and it’s even more fun to collect your own eggs while you’re there!  No charge for hen visits for guests buying eggs.

Why not help to feed our lambs while you are here too (May – August), it’s great fun feeding them from the bottle.

Please don’t feed the chickens without our supervision.   We remind guests that hand washing is essential after touching the chickens and equipment and no eating when dealing with them.
