Since Rick Maurice began researching soil biology in the 70’s soil health and biology has informed all decisions on Gillinghall. Through continued learning and years of improving the soil we aim to leave the land in better shape then when we began our role as steward.
Like all enterprises on Gillinghall, Farmer Brown’s Pastured Eggs operates under a regenerative philosophy. The regular moving of the chicken caravans not only ensures fresh pasture for the hens, but also results in improved pasture where the hens have been fertilising the soil they were temporarily camped on. We close the loop by growing and using our own feed for the hens, minimising our environmental footprint.
