Woods Egg Farm is based on Wrotham Road in Meopham, Kent where you can even go and visit the chickens yourself. All the Hens at Woods ‘Cader Idris’ farm are kept according to the RSPCA Freedom Foods and BEIC Lion Code farm assurance schemes standards (although as they are not subscribers to the Lion Mark scheme they cannot stamp the eggs as such) This is also underpinned by Woods own unique on-farm standards for quality control, hygiene, traceability and bird welfare. This ensures that not only are their eggs produced to the very highest standards but also the welfare standards of the hens are far higher than required. (Each egg carries a stamp to confirm that they are free range, that they are UK produce and their unique producer code)
