Happy Hens is the oldest and largest producer of free-range eggs in Jersey. The company is based in Grouville – just inland from Seymour and Le Hurel slips – where approximately 8,000 hens produce around 6,000 eggs per day to meet the demand for locally-laid fresh eggs.
The eggs are all sold locally through supermarkets, smaller shops and farm shops. Restaurants and hotels also buy eggs by the tray. The hens are kept in mobile houses, which allow them access to the surrounding fields, so they can come and go as they please.
Although the free-range system is far more labour intensive and hence more costly than other methods, Happy Hens believes customers appreciate the improvement to the animals welfare free range gives and the better flavour over more intensive “factory farmed” systems.
The eggs are packed in brightly coloured boxes with a ‘fresh’ looking label which we feel gives emphasis to the freshness of the product, usually delivered within 24 hours of laying. Most English eggs will be about 10 days old before they are for sale in Jersey.
